Boy Scouts
Geo. T. Wood, Representative of the Kentucky Society, S. A. R., on the Louisville Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

President's Letter
Our purpose in issuing this little pamphlet at this time is to acquaint all our members, especially those members who have not been attending the meetings, with the activities of the Society since the issuance of our last Year Book, and to so stimulate their interest and that of all of the members, that they may be more active and more helpful to the Society than heretofore. Surely, we all realize that we are passing through strenuous and critical times, times that certainly try men's souls, and if there was ever need for a patriotic society to talk and preach and practice patriotism, that time is now.

While our Society deals with the past, nevertheless, we are working for the present and future welfare of our country. As Longfellow wrote in his celebrated "Hyperion" Let us
"Look not mournfully into the Past;
It comes not again.
Wisely improve the Present;
It is thine.
Go forth to meet the shadowy future
Without fear and with a manly heart."

The S. A. R. is not a rich men's organization. It is thoroughly democratic and the dues of the Kentucky Society are only $2.00 per year, and I do not know of any society that accomplishes so much good for so little money, and I am sure that there is not a member of our organization who is not able and willing to pay the small dues that we ask.

I want each and every one of our members to take the time to read this little pamphlet and to thoroughly acquaint himself with what the Society has done and is doing.

The most important committee in the Society is the membership committee, for through the members "we live and move and have our being." I want every member of our Society this year to consider himself on this committee, whether he has been specifically appointed or not, and to earnestly help to secure as many new members as possible. There are hundreds of desirable men in this state who are eligible to join our Society who need only to be asked to join. They will not unless they are invited. Will not every member this year speak to some of his friends, who are eligible, and lend a helping hand in securing at least one new member? If everyone will only help, then with a long pull and a strong pull, and a pull altogether, we can increase our membership very materially this year, and at the same time, render a great service to our friends by inviting them to become members of our Society.

If any of your friends desire to join our Society, our efficient Secretary and our splendid membership committee will take pleasure in helping your prospect prepare his papers, and I hope that each and every member will be sufficiently interested to speak to his friends about this matter.

Allen R. Carter,

The national Society of the Sons of the American Revolution was organized April 30, 1889, and incorporated by Special Act of Congress June 6, 1906.

It is composed of 46 State Societies, and Societies in the District of Columbia, Hawaii, the Philippines, and France. The Kentucky Society was organized at Frankfort, Kentucky, April 9, 1889, its first President being the Hon. Wm. Lindsay. The Board of Managers meets on the third Tuesday of every month at the Pendennis Club for lunch and for the transaction of business. The annual election of officers takes place October 19.

The Kentucky Society celebrates every year the following anniversaries:

January 17—Battle of Cowpens.

April 19—Battles of Lexington and Concord.

June 17—Battle of Bunker Hill.

October 19—Surrender at Yorktown,

On these occasions, patriotic and helpful addresses are made by well-known speakers.

Purposes and Objects
The purposes and objects of the Society are patriotic, historical, and educational, and include those intended or designed to perpetuate the memory of the men who, by their services or sacrifices during the war of the American Revolution, achieved the independence of the American people; to unite and promote fellowship among their descendants; to inspire them and the community at large with a more profound reverence for the principles of the Government founded by our forefathers; to encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution; to acquire and preserve the records of the individual services of the patriots of the war, as well as documents, relics, and landmarks; to mark the scenes of the Revolution by appropriate memorials; to celebrate the anniversaries of the prominent events of the war and of the Revolutionary period; to foster true patriotism; to maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, and to carry out the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution of our country and the injunctions of Washington in his farewell address to the American people.

Reasons for Membership
It is a practical way of honoring a man's patriotic forefathers. It preserves for future generations the family pedigrees of members back to the period of the Revolution. The Society encourages continued public interest in the men and events of the American Revolution.

To the youth of the families of members it teaches important lessons of patriotism and good citizenship.

By the wide distribution of leaflets, printed in words that all can understand, it teaches the millions of aliens in the United States what the Nation stands for, what it means for them to become a part of the body politic, participating in the duties and responsibilities of active citizens in an intelligent manner. It is non-sectarian, non-political, uniting in friendly relationship men of all creeds, men of the North, South, East and West.

Qualifications for Membership
Any man shall be eligible to membership in the Society who, being of the age of twenty-one years or over, and a citizen of good repute in the community, is the lineal descendant of an ancestor who was at all times unfailing in his loyalty to, and rendered active service in, the cause of American Independence, either as an officer, soldier, seaman, marine, militiaman or minute man, in the armed forces of the Continental Congress, or of any one of the several Colonies or States, or as a Signer of the Declaration of Independence, or as a member of a Committee of Safety or Correspondence, or as a member of any Continental, Provincial, or Colonial Congress or Legislature, or as a recognized patriot who performed actual service by overt acts of resistance to the authority of Great Britain.

How To Become a Member
Trace your lineage back to the period of the Revolution through paternal and maternal lines and ascertain the names and residences of all male lineal ancestors of proper age for active participation in the struggle for Independence. This search may be guided by family papers and traditions, by published and original probate and land records of towns and counties, and by tombstone inscriptions. Search printed and manuscript records of military and naval service. Where two or more men of the same name are recorded from the same locality, identify as your own ancestor the one upon whom claim is based. Names of German, Dutch, or French origin may be disguised by translation into English or by various phonetic spellings.

References to manuscript sources must be accompanied by officially certified copies.

Application for membership is made on standard blanks furnished by the Secretary of the Kentucky Society or by any member of the Membership Committee. These blanks call for the place and date of birth and of death of the Revolutionary ancestor and the year of birth, of marriage, and of death of ancestors in intervening generations. Membership is based on one original claim; additional claims are filed on supplemental papers. The applications and supplementals are made in duplicate. One copy remains with the State Society and one copy is permanently preserved in the Registrar General's office, where a reference card index is kept of members' names and of their Revolutionary ancestors.
