The Order of the Founders and Patriots of America
Founded in 1896, the Order is made up of "Associates" who trace their ancestry back to those first colonists and who have forefathers in the same male ancestral line who served in the American Revolution. Today, as in the past, it is comprised of a wide range of individuals, all linked by a common heritage and dedicated to American ideals.
The principal objectives of the Order are to: Bring together those who share this common heritage Promote patriotism and a respect for the character and heroism of the founders and patriots of America Discover, collect and preserve the records, documents, monuments and history of the first colonists and their descendants Promote educational, historical and patriotic programs
