Welcome to our website. We are proud to be a new chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Colonists and hope you will be interested in joining us.
The Great Warriors Path Chapter of Staunton, Virginia was confirmed with twenty two members October 11, 2014 and held our Confirmation Meeting December 13, 2014. The newest chapter in the Virginia Society Daughters of the American Colonists, we are proud to join this thriving society. Since 1922 when the Virginia Society was founded they have primarily focused on restorations of old records.
The object of this Society is Patriotic, Historical and Educational to conduct research on the history and deeds of the American colonists, and to record and publish the same; to commemorate deeds of colonial interest, to inculcate and foster love of America and its institutions by all its residents, to obey its’ laws and venerate its’ flag- the emblem of its power and civic righteousness. (Article II, Bylaws)
Our Motto is: Past, Present, Future
Our colors are: Colonial Blue and Yellow
Our Emblem is: Oak Leaf
Our new chapter is planning on continuing in the tradition of NSDAC. We are planning exciting meetings where we will learn and share knowledge of Colonial America and especially about the central Shenandoah Valley. We meet four times a year on the second Saturday of the Month – January 10, May 9, August 8, and November 14. We will have speakers, travel to historic sites, and help to preserve history when we see a historic site fading from the landscape. One area we are helping with is securing and preserving records that left Virginia during the Civil war, that are being found in other state libraries and are being returned to Virginia. The chapter looks forward to new joining members to help with our projects.
If you have an interest in genealogy, history of the colonial period, and have or wish to find an ancestor dating back before our country was founded on July 4, 1776, please consider joining this vibrant group. Please contact us through our webmaster and we will respond quickly. We look forward to meeting you.
