Preserve Historic Places

The Object of the C.A.R. To acquire knowledge of American History To preserve and restore places of Historical importance associated with men and women who forwarded American Independence. To ascertain the deeds and honor the memories of the men, women and children who rendered service to the cause of the American Revolution. To promote the celebration of patriotic anniversaries. To honor and cherish the Flag of the United States of America above every other flag. To love, uphold and extend the principles of American liberty and patriotism. 

Two hundred forty years ago General George Washington, the Commander in Chief of the Continental Army, took to the field with his troops and spent the next eight years engaging in a military campaign to secure freedom for our patriot ancestors and their posterity. He made some of his toughest decisions in his sleeping and office tent, what we like to refer to as the “First Oval Office.” Together we will follow the ROAD TO INDEPENDENCE.

George Washington’s tent served as his field headquarters throughout the war. Let us journey together to support the preservation of our nation’s history with the Museum of the American Revolution and create a permanent home for this iconic treasure. It is an authentic witness to our shared history and followed the path that led to the fulfillment of the dream for American independence and the expansion of liberty to future states.

This year C.A.R. will promote an educational program to its members that incorporate the Commander in Chief’s travel itinerary, his personal interactions with prominent figures, and important strategic events during the war. C.A.R. will help to preserve a very rare Revolutionary War artifact, George Washington’s tent. The tent will be featured in the Washington Tent Theater, the centerpiece of the new Museum of the American Revolution, where one can truly say, “George Washington slept and worked here!”

Founding Father John Adams recognized George Washington’s leadership abilities and stalwart commitment to liberty and the American people’s right to self-govern. Following the conclusion of the American War of Independence, Adams wrote, “Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present Generation, to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make a good Use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it.”

Together we can travel the ROAD TO INDEPENDENCE and ensure the preservation of our nation’s history with the Museum of the American Revolution and create a permanent home for the First Oval Office. We can introduce the next generation to ideals we hold important—independence, service, and patriotism.
