Agency History

The Texas Society, Children of the American Revolution (TSCAR) is the state chapter of a national, patriotic, youth organization composed of individuals under the age of 22 who are lineally descended from a participant in the American Revolution (1775-1783). Purposes of the Society are to acquire knowledge of American history, promote the celebration of patriotic anniversaries, preserve and restore places of historical importance associated with veterans of the American Revolution, ascertain the deeds and honor the memories of those who rendered service to the Revolution, and honor and cherish the American flag. The organization has a dual hierarchical structure that includes youth officers and corresponding adult "senior" officers. After reaching the age of 22, members are eligible to join the Daughters of the American Revolution or the Sons of the American Revolution.
