  In 1907, our DAR chapter started the Schuyler Society of the C.A.R. We reinstated that C.A.R. society in 2003. The members of the General Peter Gansevoort Chapter are proud to continue their financial support as sponsors of the Schuyler Society, and also to provide senior leadership at the local, state, and national levels of the Children of the American Revolution.

Our mission is to instill an appreciation for the history of our country’s founding, to encourage leadership and citizenship, and to have some fun seeing and reliving the history of our area.
