The Daughters of the American Revolution, National Society, was founded on October 11, 1890. Its objectives (per the NSDAR website) are to "perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence...to carry out the injunction of Washington in his farewell address to the American people, 'to promote, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge, thus developing an enlightened public opinion...' and to cherish, maintain, and extend the institutions of American freedom, to foster true patriotism and love of country, and to aid in securing for mankind all the blessings of liberty."
This collection consists primarily of materials relating to historic spots in Georgia. It is arranged alphabetically by county. It was compiled by Mrs. Rena F. Travis, state chairman, Historic Spot Committee, Daughters of the American Revolution, Georgia. Also included is information on Georgia's Great Seal and ship keels and knees made from Georgia oak.
Material was acquired from the son of Rena F. Travis, state chairman of DAR, Georgia State Society Historic Spots Committee and compiler of materials.
