Daughters of the American Revolution Founders Memorial

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 by Mary Simth Lockwood, Mary Desha, Ellen Hardin Walworth, and Eugenia Washington. This memorial, on the grounds of Washington, DC's Constitution Hall, was dedicated to the DAR founders on April 17, 1929.

Here, historian Richard Norton Smith talks about the memorial, sculpted by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, herself a DAR member.
