The United States of America became this great, independent country when our ancestors started and successfully won the American Revolution of 1776-1783.  Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) is a society which got its start about the time of the first centennial anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1876 when a group of surviving ancestors of the Revolutionary Patriots formed a parade entry.  The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution was founded on April 30, 1889, and incorporated by act of Congress June 9, 1906.  Membership consists of male descendants of those Patriots who, during the American Revolution, rendered unwavering loyal service to the cause of winning our freedom from England.

The Great Lakes District of the Sons of the American Revolution includes the State SAR Societies of Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin. The bylaws of the Great Lakes District can be found under the "GLD Home" link in the page heading above.
