Welcome to Patriots Remembered!

I love studying American history, particularly American Revolutionary War history and US Civil War history. I find the men and women, who "sacrificed their lives and fortunes" to create a country they loved, incredibly fascinating. When you look up these wars through various resources, however, we often lose sight of the individual men and women who fought, gave aid, or were the most affected by the ongoing struggle. I wanted to create a site for those people.

This site, in particular, will focus on currently "proven" (or accepted) Patriots with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and will also help uncover other potential, currently un-proven Patriots for anyone who may be eligible to apply for membership under them. I will strive to highlight each individual Patriot's experience and the personal effect the War had on them and the lives of their family. I will provide all relevant source documentation and try to make it as easy as possible to gather the needed materials for your own DAR application (or DAR supplemental application).

And, please! If you, the reader, have anything to add to my post(s), photos, personal stories passed down through your own family, I'd love to hear them! Comment below on the related post, or send me an email. I hope this will be an ever-evolving site as new Patriots are constantly being approved almost every month!

If you are interested in Civil War history, check out my other site Civil War Souls. That site has a similar focus as this site, taking a look at the lives of individual soldiers, Union or Confederate, but it obviously isn't directed at filling out DAR applications.
