The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a nonprofit, nonpolitical volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to preserving America history and promoting patriotism.

About Us

The William Taylor Chapter NSDAR was organized on 30 November 1955 and confirmed on 7 December 1955. Our chapter is named after the patriot, William Taylor. He served in the House of Burgesses from 1763 to 1768 and was Clerk of the Court in Lunenburg County from 1763 to 1814. In the House of Burgesses he heard Patrick Henry’s rousing speech, and he was a strong patriot assisting with changing the laws of Britain to developing laws of the Articles of the Confederation and onto the Constitution.


The William Taylor NSDAR Chapter is based in the heart of southern Virginia. Local members of the William Taylor Chapter are residents of Brunswick, Mecklenburg, and Nottoway Counties, as well as Lunenburg.
Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution honors and preserves the legacy of your patriot ancestor. Over two hundred years ago, American Patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today. As a member of DAR, through participation in the Society’s various programs and activities, you can continue this legacy by actively supporting historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavors.
