Upcoming Symposium at the DAR Headquarters in Washington, DC

Join Us for an Exciting DAR Museum Symposium!

How does memory and collecting shape our understanding of the American Revolution? The upcoming DAR Museum symposium explores in more depth the museum's current exhibit, Remembering the American Revolution: 1776-1890, which examines how several generations of 19th century Americans preserved the memory of the American Revolution through war mementos they saved and consumer goods they purchased.
