Welcome to the Oregon Society
Sons of the American Revolution

The Oregon Society, SAR was organized on June 6, 1891. Today, the Oregon Society has chapters in Portland, Salem, Eugene, and Medford (southern Oregon area). The 2013-2014 President of the Oregon Society is Compatriot Johnny Alexander.

The Sons of the American Revolution is the leading male lineage society that perpetuates the ideals of the War for Independence.  As a historical, educational, and patriotic, non-profit corporation, we seek to maintain and expand the meaning of patriotism, respect for our national symbols, the value of American citizenship, and the unifying force of e pluribus unum that was created from the people of many nations — one nation and one people.
