Cherokee Chapter – Sons of the American Revolution
Who We Are
The basic tenets of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are to perpetuate the memory of the people and events of the American Revolution, to maintain the institutions of American Freedom, and to promote fellowship among the descendants of Revolutionary War Patriots. The Cherokee Chapter, located in Canton, Georgia, serves the citizens of Cherokee , Cobb, Fulton, Pickens, Forsyth, Gilmer, Bartow, Dawson, & Gordon counties. We provide patriotic and historical programs to schools as well as recognition to outstanding Eagle Scouts, ROTC cadets, police officers, and firefighters. Through Proclamations and Certificates of Appreciation, we help remind every citizen and public official that the privilege of freedom is not free. We need the help of all patriotic Americans to secure for future generations the liberties provided by our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and American institutions. Come join the Cherokee Chapter or one of our partners in the cause of freedom: Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), Georgia Children of the American Revolution, American Legion, or Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).
