In the Beginning
|Society of the Cincinnati Crest|
A Band of Brothers
The Society's Founder
was still woefully equipped, fed and paid, and much unrest among the men and officers festered. So the idea of the Society was a means to bind the officers to each other and the new nation.
A Society Formed
Officers in the Continental Line who died during the War were also entitled to be recorded as members.

The Society Today
Today the society is a non-profit with the mission of education on our nation founding and fostering an appreciation of the principles of the American Revolution. Headquartered at the the (very impressive) Anderson House in Washington, DC, the Society maintains a small museum and library. It hosts a variety of educational events that are open to the public, including lectures and book signings, concerts, themed wine tastings, and children's programs. Exploring aspects of the American Revolution, the Society's history, and Anderson House, these events are an important part of the Society's educational mission.
