Welcome to the Wisconsin Society, Sons of the American Revolution (WISSAR)

Our society is part of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR). We are a non-profit organization that promotes patriotic, historical and educational objectives, including the perpetuation of the memory of the men and women, who by their sacrifices during the American Revolutionary War, secured independence from Great Britain and established the United States of America. Our members are the direct lineal descendants of those patriots.

The Wisconsin Society, and its five Chapters, actively promotes various programs throughout the state. We have conducted scholarship and recognition programs for high school and elementary school students, ROTC, JROTC and Naval Sea Cadets, as well as Eagle Scouts. We perform volunteer work for Veterans, preserve the grave markers of Revolutionary War Patriots in our state, and recognize our public servants by presenting awards to public safety officials. The WISSAR Color Guard participates in patriotic events and parades, proudly dressed in Revolutionary War uniforms representing George Washington's personal guard.

Join Us!

Any man of age eighteen years or over, who is a lineal descendent of an ancestor who supported the War for American Independence, is eligible for membership to the Sons of the American Revolution. Further information about the membership process is contained within this website under the Membership tab. We eagerly invite you to become a part of our fine organization and are happy to provide assistance with the application process, free of charge, to those seeking membership.
