The Daughters of the Revolution of 1776 was organized in 1890 with similar membership requirements and similar goals to those of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The membership application said, "A woman may be eligible to membership in the Society who is above the age of eighteen years, and is descended from an ancestor who assisted in establishing American Independence during the War of the Revolution, either as a military or naval officer, a soldier or a sailor, an official in the service of any of the thirteen original Colonies or of the United Colonies or States or of Vermont; a member of a committee of Correspondence or of Public safety, or a recognized patriot who rendered material service in the cause of American Independence."[1]
