Thomas Jefferson Chapter Sons of the American Revolution

We welcome you to the Thomas Jefferson Chapter

Sons of the American Revolution

The members of the Thomas Jefferson Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution thank you for visiting our website. Our Chapter is located in the heart of Central Virginia, in Charlottesville, and is one of the most active chapters in the Virginia Society. The Thomas Jefferson Chapter was chartered in 1939 and over its seventy-three year history it has sought to honor and remember the patriots who scarified and suffered to give us a nation built on the principles of individual rights and republican governance. Throughout the year our chapter holds events at the graves of our patriot ancestors to keep green their contributions to the great American spirit of freedom and to promote their dream of a nation built on the ideals of popular sovereignty.

The activities of the Thomas Jefferson Chapter include meetings in March, April, June, Oct, and Dec as well as commemorations for the Birthday's of President's Jefferson and Madison. We are also involved in the commemoration of several key events of the revolutionary war such as The Crossing of the Dan, the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, and Yorktown. A detailed schedule of our activities can be found on the meeting and events calendar page of this website.

I welcome and encourage you to contact the officers listed at the bottom of this page for additional information, or answers to your questions, on the procedures to join the Thomas Jefferson Chapter Sons of the American Revolution. We have also provided a link to the National Society's membership page for your convenience in locating the required forms and directions for joining the Sons of the American Revolution.

Thank you for visiting us today and sharing your interest in the Thomas Jefferson Chapter.

In Fraternity, Loyalty, and Charity,

Mark R. Day, Chapter President


The purpose of this site is to explain the programs of the Thomas Jefferson Chapter SAR, provide information about scheduled events, and to aid in the recruitment of new members


A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both, and deserve neither.
