Mission Statement
Reflects the purpose of the C.A.R.

The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution trains good citizens, develops leaders and promotes love of the United States of America and its heritage among young people.

–Adopted October 18, 1999

The C.A.R. Creed

I believe in the Children of the American Revolution as an organization for the training of young people in true patriotism and love of country, in order that they shall be better fitted for American citizenship.

As a descendant of the Founders of my Country, I believe that my birthright brings a responsibility to carry on their work, and that as the boys and girls of 1776 took an active part in the War for Independence, so the boys and girls of today have a definite work to do for their Country.

 

As a member of the Children of the American Revolution, I believe it is my duty to use my influence to create a deeper love of country, a loyal respect for its Constitution and reverence for its Flag among the young people with whom I come in contact.

–Ethel Vance Mosher
Adopted October 11, 1923

We’re members of the C.A.R.
A great and mighty band
We pledge our might for the cause of right
For home and native land.

Chorus:  We love thee, Old Glory,
And we ever strive to be
Most worthy descendants
Of worthy ancestry;
We love thee, Old Glory,
And our hearts are staunch and true,
We love each stripe and ev’ry star
Of our flag, red, white, and blue.

Those great and noble patriots,
Offered up their blood,
To save a new born nation,
From a cruel tyrant’s rod.

Chorus

The blue calls out to us, “Be true,”
The white calls out, “Be pure,”
The red, “Be brave, their blood they gave,
That this land might endure.”

Chorus

The American’s Creed

Reflects the ideals and principles upon which America was founded

I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a Perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its Flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

William Tyler Page
Congressional Record, April 13, 1918
