Welcome to the Louisville Thruston SAR website!
The Dr. V. Edward Masters Memorial Color Guard was formed in 1996
and is an integral part of the Louisville-Thruston Chapter.
Welcome to the website of the Louisville Thruston Chapter, Kentucky Society, Sons of the American Revolution (SAR). Our chapter was first organized in 1960 and is the largest in the state comprised of over 300 members. All members are lineal descendants of a patriot who either fought for independence during the Revolutionary War or provided material aid for the cause. If you are interested in membership, please contact our chapter’s Registrar shown on the Officer’s page. Our chapter is growing, and we need you!
While you are here be sure and read our chapter president’s message on the President’s Page and browse through the other tabs shown in the left-hand margin. We have several programs to support our youth. If you are a young person in school, be sure and check out the tab on Youth Contests. The chapter’s online newsletter, called The Long Rifleman, is published each month, and you can view the current edition by clicking the Newsletter tab, then "Current Issue." The chapter’s color guard organization, the first in the Kentucky Society, participates in a wide range of activities throughout the year dressed in their authentic Continental Line uniforms and militia-style outfits.
If you are interested in history and the founding of this great nation, you have come to the right place!
