United States Daughters of 1812
The National Society, United States Daughters of 1812 was founded in 1892. We are a volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving and increasing knowledge of the history of the American people by the preservation of documents and relics, the marking of historic spots, the recording of family histories and traditions, the celebration of patriotic anniversaries, the teaching and emphasizing of the heroic deeds of the civil, military, and naval life of those who molded this government between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812, from 1784 to 1815 inclusive, and the maintaining, at National Headquarters in Washington D.C., a museum and library of memorabilia of the 1784-1815 period.
