In 1890, Mrs. Sarah B. C. Morgan became a charter member of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1891, she was appointed by the National Board of Management as Regent, with a request that she organize a chapter in Augusta.
She issued a call in the Augusta Chronicle "for such women in the community as had Revolutionary ancestry to meet on a certain day in the parlors of the Planters Hotel and cooperate in organization."
Sixteen ladies became Charter Members of the Augusta Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, organized on February 20, 1892, thus attaining the distinction of becoming the nineteenth chapter in the union and the third chapter in the state of Georgia.
The Augusta Chapter meets monthly, September through May, at various locations throughout the city.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has recently announced that Daughters and others interested in historic preservation, patriotism and education around the country can now subscribe to or renew American Spirit magazine and the Daughters newsletter by using the new Online Subscriptions Service.
