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 countr\'. 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 member-
ship 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 spe-
cifically 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 materialh^ this year, and at the same time, render a great
service to our friends by inviting them to become members of our
If any of your friends desire to join our Society, our efficient
Secretary and our splendid membership committee will take pleas-
ure 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
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, Ky.,
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
January 17 — Battle of Cowpens.
April 19 — Battles of Lexington and Concord.
Jime 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, his-
torical, and educational, and include those intended or designed to
perpetuate the memor}^ 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 com-
munity 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 jjatriotism; to
maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, and to
carry out the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Consti-
tution 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 relation-
ship 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 lo^^alt}^ 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 Cor-
respondence, 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 inscrip-
tions. 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
References to manuscript sources must be accompanied b}^
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 pre-
served in the Registrar General's office, where a reference card
index is kept of members' names and of their Revolutionary

My Old Kentucky Home
The sun shines bright in my old Kentucky home;
'Tis summer, the darkies are gay;
The corntop's ripe and the meadow's in the bloom,
While the birds make music all the daj'.
The young folk roll on the little cabin floor,
All merry, all happy, all bright,
By-m by hard times comes a-knockin' at the door —
Then my old Kentucky home, good night.
Weep no more, my lady; oh weep no more today;
We'll sing one song for the old Kentucky home,
For our old Kentucky home far away.
They hunt no more for the 'possum and the coon.
On the meadow, the hill and the shore;
They sing no more bj'^ the glimmer of the moon
On the bench by the old cabin door.
The day goes by like a shadow o'er the heart.
With sorrow where all was delight ;
The time has come when the darkies have to part,
Then my old Kentucky home, good night.
The head must bow, and the back will have to bend,
Wherever the darkies rnay go;
A few more days and the trouble all will end
In the field where the sugar canes grow.
A few more days to "tote" the weary load —
No matter it will never be light;
A few more days till we totter on the road ;
Then my old Kentucky home, good night.
The Star-Spangled Banner
Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight.
Over the ramparts we watch'd were so gallantly streaming;
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air.
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
On the shore dimly seen thro' the mist of the deep
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze o'er the towering steep
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glor}^ reflected, now shines on the stream;
'Tis the star-spangled banner, oh ! long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave;
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Oh! thus be it e'er when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation;
Then conquer we must when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto, "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
