Bernardo de Gálvez Chapter #1, Sons of the American Revolution

The Bernardo de Gálvez Chapter #1 was started to celebrate and remember our patriots and their contributions to the American Revolution.

The first meeting was held December 8, 1896 as reported in the Galveston Daily News of December 9, column 3 from the left.

The current organization was reinstituted in 1986.

Our patriots lineage can be traced to our membership with pride.

We have 70 active members, with several membership applications pending. Of those members, we have 9 officers.

Along with the membership, we represent 52 patriots that fought or assisted in the fight to win this great country her independence. This patriot list includes 6 submitted as supplement applications to the SAR.

The Bernardo de Gálvez Chapter is also a community contributor, assisting the local community with educational functions, participation in parades and events as representatives of SAR, as well as conducting ceremonies and presentations on current veterans issues and events.

The Chapter also recognizes and reciprocates with The George Washington Chapter, DAR, Galveston, all able to trace lineage as Daughters of the American Revolution.

We also embody the goals and purposes of the National SAR organization that we seek to maintain and extend:

  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.

The Bernardo de Galvez Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution meets the third Saturday of every month. Guests are welcome. Please join us. Contact us here for more information.
