CONSTITUTION. 



CONSTITUTION 



General Society of Sons of the Revolution. 



IT BEING evident, fi-om a steady decline of a proper 
celebration of the National holidays of the United 
States of America, that popular concern in the events 
and men of the war of the Kevolution is gradually declining, 
and that such lack of interest is attributable, not so much to 
the lapse of time and the rapidly increasing flood of immigra- 
tion from foreign countries, as to the neglect, on the part of 
descendants of Eevolutionary heroes, to perform their duty 
in keeping before the public mind the memory of the ser- 
vices of their ancestors and of the times in which they lived ; 
therefore, the Society of Sons of the Revolution has been in- 
stituted to perpetuate the memory of the men who, in the 
military, naval and civil service of the Colonies and of the 
Continental Congress, by their acts or counsel, achieved the 
independence of the country, and to further the proper cele- 
bration of the anniversaries of the birthday of Washington, 
and of prominent events connected with the war of the Revo- 
lution; to collect and secure for preservation the rolls, rec- 
ords and other documents relating to that period ; to inspire 
the members of the Society with the patriotic sjiirit of their 



18 SONS OF THE REVOLUTION. 

forefathers ; and to promote the feeling of friendship among 
them. 

The General Society shall be divided into State Societies, 
which shall meet annually on the day appointed therefor in 
their respective by-laws, and oftener if found expedient; 
and at such annual meeting the reasons for the institution of 
the Society shall be considered, and the best measures for 
carrying them into effect adopt<>d. 

The State Societies, at every annual meeting, shall choose 
a President, a Vice-President, a Secretary, a Registrar, a 
Treasurer, a Chaplain, and such other officers as may by 
them respectively be deemed necessary, together with a Board 
of Managers consisting of such officers and other members 
as may be provided by their respective constitutions and by- 
laws. 

Each State Society shall cause to be transmitted annually, 
or oftener, to the other State Societies, a circular letter call 
ing attention to whatever may be thought worthy of ob- 
servation resjiecting the welfare of the Society or of the 
general union of the States, and giving infonnation of the 
officers chosen for the year; and copies of these letters shall 
also be transmitted to the General Secretary, to be preserved 
among the records of the General Society. 

The State Societies shall regulate all matters respecting 
their ov\^l affairs, consistent with the general good of the 
Society ; judge of the qualifications of their members or of 
those proposed for membership, subject, however, to the 
provisions of this Constitution; and expel any member who, 



CONSTITUTION. 19 

bv conduct unbecoming a gentleman or a man of honor, or 
by an opposition to the interests of the community in general 
or of the Society in particular, may render himself un- 
worthy to continue in membership. 

In order to form funds that may be respectable, each mem- 
ber shall contribute, upon his admission to the Society and 
annually thereafter, such sums as the by-laws of the respec- 
tive State Societies may require; but any of such State So- 
cieties may provide for the endowment of memberships by 
the payment of proper sums in capitalization, which sums 
shall be properly invested as a permanent fund, the income 
only of which shall be expended. 

The regular meeting of the General Society shall be held 
every three years, and special meetings may be held upon 
the order of the General President, or upon the request of 
two of the State Societies, and such meetings shall consist 
of two delegates from each State Society, and one additional 
delegate for every one hundred members or major fraction 
thereof ; and on all questions arising at meetings of the Gen- 
eral Society each delegate there present shall be entitled to 
one vote, and no votes shall be taken by States; and the 
necessary expenses of such meeting shall be borne by the 
State Societies. 

At the regular meeting, a General President, General 
Vice-President, General Second Vice-President, General 
Secretary, Assistant General Secretary, General Ti-easurer, 
Assistant General Treasurer, General Kegistrar, General 
Historian and General Chaplain shall be chosen by a ma- 



20 SONS OF TBE REVOLUTION. 

jority of the votes present, to serve until the next regular 
general meeting, or until their successors are duly chosen. 

At each general meeting the circular letters which have 
been transmitted by the several State Societies shall be con- 
sidered, and all measures taken which shall conduce to the 
general welfare of the Society. 

The General Society shall have power at any meeting to 
admit State Societies thereto, and to entertain and determine 
all qiiestions affecting the qualifications for membership in 
or the welfare of any State Society as may, by proper me- 
morial, be presented by such State Society for considera- 
tion. 

Any male person above the age of twenty-one years, of 
good character, and a descendant of one who, as a military, 
naval or marine officer, soldier, sailor or marine, in actual 
service, under the authority of any of the thirteen Colonies 
or States or of the Continental Congress, and remaining 
always loyal to such authority, or a descendant of one who 
signed the Declaration of Independence, or of one who, as 
a member of the Continental Congress or of the Congress of 
any of the Colonies or States, or as an official appointed by 
or under the authority of any such legislative bodies, actu- 
ally assisted in the establishment of American independence 
by services rendered during the war of the Revolution, be- 
coming thereby liable to conviction of treason against the 
government of Great Britain, but remaining always loyal 
to the authority of the Colonies or States, shall be eligible to 
membership in the Society. 



CONSTITUTION. 21 

The Secretary of each State Society shall transmit to the 
General Secretary a list of the members thereof, together 
with the names and official designations of those from whom 
such members derive claim to membership, and thereafter

Secretary thereof shall transmit to the General Secretary in- 
formation respecting such members similar to that herein 
required. 

The Society shall have an insignia, which shall be a badge 
suspended from a ribbon by a ring of gold ; the badge to be 
elliptical in form, with escaloped edges, one and one-quarter 
inches in length, and one and one-eighth inches in width;

teen raised gold stars of five points each upon a border of

dallion corres]ionding in form to that on the obverse, and 
also in gold, bearing on its face the Houdon portrait of 
Washington in bas-relief, encircled by the legend, "Sons of 
the Eevolution;" beneath, the figures 1883; and upon the 
reverse of the eagle the number of the badge to be engraved; 
the medallion to be surrounded by a plain gold border, con- 
forming in dimensions to the obverse; the ribbon shall be 
dark blue, ribbed and watered, edged with bufl^, one and one- 
quarter inches wide, and one and one-half inches in dis- 
played length.

PATRIOTIC HYMN 



Tunc, "Ancient of Days." 

Lord God of Hosts, Who led our fathers hither 
And gave this western strand to Freetlom's cause, 

We praise Thy JSTanie, Whose mercies never wither. 
And pledge obedience to Thy righteous laws. 

Our fathers hoped in Thee and trusted surely; 

Thou didst deli\ er by Thy mighty Hand ; 
Under the shadow of Thy wings securely 

Dwelt they at freedom in this favored land. 

To us their sons give of Thy grace abounding 

That we may cherish liberty and law, 
By justice strong all baser breeds confounding 

Who hold not Thee, nor Righteousness in awe. 

From foes without and foes within assailing 

Keep Thou our Country through the changing days, 

From Mammon's pride and Anarchy's prevailing 
Guai'd Thou the State and prosper all her ways. 

O God we pray through centuries unceasing 

That this dear Land may be with freedom bright 

In justice strong and ever still increasing 
In peace and health, prosperity and right.
