Welcome to the Web site of the
This year's State Project is to raise funds for the Tamassee DAR School, in South Carolina. The State Theme this year is "Securing Our Futures." I hope that the Georgia Society will raise $ 1,000 that will be placed on a Visa Gift Card and given to the principal of the school. To achieve this goal the Georgia Society will be selling t - shirts, lapel pins, red backpacks, pens and pencils, and other helpful school items. As the son of two teachers I know personally the strain on teachers during this economic crisis. Thank You, and please help “Secure Our Futures.?/b>

In the summer of 1776, the representatives of the 13 colonies met in the State House in Philadelphia. The question before them that afternoon was the resolution stating, “That these united colonies are and of right ought to be free and independent states; …” With 12 ayes and 1 abstention, the resolution was adopted. This was The Beginnings of Freedom which changed the world forever. Twice more men met in that same State House, now known as Independence Hall, to take the expressions of Freedom given in 1776 and turn them into the very building blocks of our nation. The Declaration of Independence gave birth to the Articles of Confederation, which in turn became the foundation of the Constitution of the United States. Each gave us the Freedoms for which our patriot ancestors fought and died.
In the West Wing of Independence Hall is housed the Great Essentials Exhibit. Literally, in the room next to where they were crafted, lay the Declaration of Independence printed in 1776, the Articles of Confederation printed circa 1780, the Constitution of the United States printed in 1787, and the silver inkstand used to sign the Declaration and Constitution. The Great Essentials Exhibit is contained in a display case that is uniquely designed to preserve and protect these historic documents and inkstand. After 10 years of continuous operation, the Great Essentials Exhibit requires an upgrade. Among the repairs planned are to replace all illuminator boxes in the fiber-optic lighting system, clean fire detection and security alarm heads while replacing any worn connections, redesign and replace the display case infrastructure to adequately support the document containers, repair damaged finish on case exterior, replace case-opening mechanism to eliminate sticking of case lid, and replace case lid with new glazing.
Much work has been done to preserve this sacred place in our nation's history, and more work is needed. We, The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution, have a part to play in this need. The importance of preserving America's founding documents as they were known to the men who debated and signed them at Independence Hall has direct applicability to the mission of The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution. Our members are in a unique position to fulfill this need. The repairs and restoration of the Great Essentials Exhibit case will ensure that these documents continue to be available to all Americans and visitors who will experience a direct connection to our past through viewing the original documents of this momentous time in our nation's founding.
N.S.C.A.R. will honor these men for their patriotism, their foresight, and their "Magnificent Valor." I hope you enjoy exploring and learning about "Magnificent Valor:" The Beginnings of Freedom and all of American history.
