    See the NSCAR Web site at http://www.nscar.org for further information.

    Harriett Lothrop, a prominent citizen and 19th century children's author of Concord, MA, presented the idea for a children's organization to the Daughters of the American Revolution Continental Congress in 1895; it was then chartered by the United States Congress. Organized "for the training of young people in true patriotism and love of country," C.A.R. has promoted this vision to hundreds of thousands of members. These boys and girls are the leaders of yesterday, today and tomorrow, now in a second century of keeping patriotism alive.

    C.A.R., the nation's oldest, largest, patriotic youth organization, offers membership to anyone under the age of 21, lineally descended from someone who served in the Continental Army or gave material aid to the cause of freedom in the American Revolution.

    The Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.) has founded the Corps of Discovery society, a Missouri State Society (which has no Web site). Their purpose and membership requirements are similar to those of the SAR. For information, call Mrs. Cathy Owens, current National Librarian and senior president of the C of D, 1115 Valentine Road, Kansas City, MO 64111-3821; 816-931-1860.
