National Projects

The Jamestown Rediscovery Project uses funds to further research at the site of the first permanent English settlement (1607) in the United States and to house the valuable artifacts being discovered.

The Virginia Historical Society houses the lineage records for the National Society Daughters of Colonial Wars. The records are placed on microfilm and are available for researchers to access. The original papers and records of the National Society are stored in the climate controlled archives.

Earl Greg Swem Library is located on the campus of the College of William and Mary. The National Society makes a donation to the Library for the purchase of books with an emphasis on original early colonial books.

 

Cathedral of the Pines receives a monetary donation from the National Society for maintenance of the “Cathedral”. The Cathedral of the Pines is located in New Hampshire and is a lovely outdoor shrine that honors all American War dead.

Military Academies:

The National Society gives an award of books to a graduating cadet of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado for excellence in American History and to a graduating cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York for the highest average in United States History. This award is an engraved pitcher.
