Chapter By Laws

Welcome, to the website of the Bernardo de Gálvez
Chapter #1 for 2023. We are glad you found us. If you have an ancestor who contributed to the War of American Independence we invite you to attend our next meeting July 20, see below.

Our website serves 2 purposes:

First, we are the official on-line informational source for members of the Galveston, Texas area Chapter of SAR. Visitors can access information about local SAR activities and meetings, contact other members, and keep up to date on all chapter events.

Second, in keeping with the goals and obectives set out by the National Society, this web site is designed "to perpetuate the memory of those who, by their services or sacrifices during the war of the American Revolution, achieved the Independence of the American People."

What is the SAR Organization about?

The SAR is an historical, educational, and patriotic non-profit, United States 501(c)3, corporation that seeks 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.

We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

The Chapter normally meets the third Saturday of every month with the exception of September and December. In September we meet with the members of the George Washington Chapter of the DAR to commorate the Constitution of the United States. December corresponds to the anniversary of our founding in 1896.

Contact our President Billy Mayo if you plan on attending, or for more information.
