123rd Anniversary of DAR Founding
Today marks the celebrate of the 123rd anniversary of the founding of the Daughters of the American Revolution! On October 11, 1890, eighteen women attended the first official organizational meeting of the newly formed DAR. By the end of the meeting, eleven members had paid their dues, and the DAR opened for business with $33 in the bank. This photo was taken by renowned photographer Mathew Brady at the first DAR Continental Congress.
