Happy Birthday Daughters of the American Revolution

Yesterday marked the 122nd anniversary of the founding of the Daughters of the American Revolution.  The D.A.R. is a group that is made up of women who can prove they are directly related to a descendant of the Revolutionary War. The organization was founded by Mrs. Benjamin Harrison on October 11th, 1890.  The Quincy area has a local organization that meets regularly and is known as The Dorothy Quincy Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution of Quincy, Illinois.  Last month they commemorated the 225th anniversary of the drafting of the Constitution of the United States of America by the Constitutional Convention.

The local D.A.R. asks citizens to reaffirm the ideals the framers of the constitution had in 1787 by vigilantly protecting the freedoms guaranteed to us through the guardian of our liberties, remembering that lost rights may never be regained. A display celebrating this event was set up at John Wood Community College and Ridder’s Business Supply.

This is a small but very important group of ladies that meet locally monthly and who continue to remind us that our freedoms have come at a cost and that our forefathers set down a path we should follow to continue those freedoms.

Thank you ladies for keeping that candle burning.
