Dazzling Daughters Collection

A Dazzling Daughter is a woman who was (or is) a member of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, and made their mark on history. They were outstanding in whatever field it is they chose to partake in, and as a member of NSDAR myself, I feel so privileged to be able to share these stories with you. Who knows, maybe someday I'll be a Dazzling Daughter myself!


PS, also included are the women who have a DAR chapter named after them. In those cases the woman in question was not a member of DAR but has been honored by the ladies of the organization instead.
