Who We Are

The United States Daughters of 1812, founded in 1892, is a volunteer women’s service organization whose members are lineal descendants of Americans who provided civil, military, or naval service to the United States between 1784-1815.

The organization is dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving and increasing knowledge of the history of the American people by the preservation of documents and relics, marking of historic spots, recording of family histories and traditions, celebration of patriotic anniversaries, teaching and emphasizing the heroic deeds of the civil, military, and naval life of those who molded this Government between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812.

The Captain William Magill Chapter was organized and chartered in 2015.
