The Compatriots of the ESS-SAR and the Long Island chapter invite you to join our ranks as we strive to keep patriotism and the memory of our Revolutionary War heritage burning in the hearts and minds of every American, young and old.
For more than 100 years, the Long Island Chapter of The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) continues to be a historical, educational and patriotic non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • The institutions of American freedom
  • An appreciation for true patriotism
  • A respect for our national symbols
  • The value of American citizenship
  • The unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people
We do this by our contributions to our community that help to perpetuate the patriotism, courage and sacrifice of the men and women who achieved the independence of the American people.  We believe that we have a responsibility to inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

All of our members are lineal descendants of a patriot who either fought for independence during the Revolutionary War or provided material aid for the cause.
