About   Purpose


The Society of the Cincinnati unites its members in a fellowship promoting the memory of the achievement of American independence. The Society believes that remembering the service and sacrifice of the men who won American independence is vital to the preservation of free institutions. To achieve this purpose, the founders of the Society made membership hereditary, with the expectation that their descendants would feel a special obligation to keep the memory of the American Revolution alive. The founders also provided for admission of honorary members who support the Society's aims.
