What is the National Society Children of the American Revolution?

In 1895 the idea for a children's organization was suggested to the Daughters of the American Revolution Continental Congress.

Organized "for the training of young people in true patriotism and love of country," the members are the leaders of yesterday, today and tomorrow, now in a second century of keeping patriotism alive.

Who can join?
  NSCAR, as the nation’s oldest, largest, patriotic youth organization, offers membership to anyone, male or female, from birth to under the age of 21, lineally descended from someone who rendered material aid to the cause of American Independence as a soldier, sailor, civil officer, or recognized patriot in one of the several Colonies or States, or of the United States.
