Welcome to the Tennessee SAR Website. The Tennessee SAR, Sons of the American Revolution, currently has 21 Chapters and over 1,200 members. Our Society supports and works closely with the Children of the American Revolution and The Daughters of the American Revolution promoting American Heritage.

    Our Mission:

Perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men and women who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief  that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is  called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions, including the stories of those brave men and women who came to this Tennessee  wilderness with little more than their raw grit and determination and proceeded to claw out a gracious society of which WE are the recipients.
