Descended from patriots in a nation secured for our future
“Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”
― John Adams
Welcome to the Springfield Chapter of the Illinois Society of the Sons of the Revolution webpage. The United States is a home to all, we speak different languages and enjoy different cultures; but we at the Sons of the Revolution recognize and honor our patriot ancestors. We honor them first by name and service, then we honor them by continuing the legacy that many of them bled for. Please take this opportunity to learn and grow, to maybe find a patriot ancestor, and to take up a piece of American history not only for yourself but for future generations.
