The Sons of the American Revolution

The Sons of the American Revolution, the largest male lineage organization in the U.S., consists of 50 societies with more than 500 local chapters, several international societies (including Canada, France, Germany, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom), and over 34,000 members. Prominent SAR members include sixteen U.S. Presidents, Sir Winston Churchill, and Kings Juan Carlos I and Felipe VI of Spain.

SAR members have also answered their country's call in every major American conflict beginning with the battle of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775, and continuing to the present day, including Operation Desert Storm, Bosnia, and the recent actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. SAR members have received the highest awards America can bestow, including the Medal of Honor.


Chartered in 2007, the Colonel James Wood, II Chapter has quickly grown into one of the best chapters in the state of Virginia, being named best chapter 6 times in nine years and receiving numerous awards. Based in the Northern Shenandoah Valley, the Chapter covers a five county area of Frederick, Clarke, Page, Warren and Shenandoah Counties plus the City of Winchester.

Our chapter continually supports the purposes of the Sons of the American Revolution which are patriotic, historical and educational. We strive to ensure that the patriots who gave us the United States of America are not forgotten; to promote patriotism in support of our country and its modern day heroes and; to support teaching the history and values of the American Revolution and our constitutional freedoms.
