Thread Name: Lyr: Daughters of the Revolution (Berni Armstrong)
Subject: RE: Daughters of the Revolution
I've heard - though Heaven knows where - of the Daughters of the American Revolution, aka the DAR; they are women who can trace their ancestry back to men or women or both (I'm not sure which) who were around at the time of the American Revolution - and presumably who were on the Good Guys' side! I've also seen a mention of them in a novel from the sixties, where they were made out to be a bit on the snobbish side, like Old Money. As a Brit, of course, I'm strictly neutral on this (anyway, we've been snobs for much longer!)
