Daughters of the American Revolution

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a service organization open to any woman age 18 years and older who can prove lineal descent from an American Revolutionary War Patriot. Much of the work of DAR is accomplished by volunteers in its chapters across the United States and internationally in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.


The Major Winfield Scott Chapter, NSDAR, is a local chapter of DAR. Our chapter is based in Scottsdale, Arizona, and was chartered on October 4, 2008. Our chapter is focused on patriotism, education, and historic preservation. Our members are multi-faceted women of our community who value our history and take pride in our American Revolutionary War Patriots.


The Major Winfield Scott Chapter, NSDAR, welcomes prospective members. Please contact us for an invitation to visit one of our chapter meetings. We meet on Saturday mornings from October to May in Scottsdale, Arizona. By attending a meeting, you will meet members who have the experience to assist you in obtaining your goal of membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution.
