...to the Michigan Society of the Sons of the American Revolution website. Here you will find everything you need to learn about the Michigan organization of the SAR, our background and community service activities, and how to join.

The MISSAR was formed on January 18, 1890, and included representatives from the Michigan communities of Adrian, Detroit, Flint, Owosso, and Romulus.

Article II of the original MISSAR Constitution stated: "The object and purpose of this society is to keep alive among ourselves and our descendants the patriotic spirit of the men who, in military, naval, or civil service, by their acts or counsel achieved American independence."

Today, the MISSAR has grown to over 500 members and has eleven chapters representing all areas of the state.
