Louisville Thruston Chapter Sons of the American Revolution

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 American cause. If you are interested in membership, please contact our chapter’s Registrar shown on the Officer’s page. Our chapter is growing, but 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 the young people in our community. If you are a young person in school, be sure and check out the tab on Youth Contests. The chapter’s color guard organization, the first in the Kentucky Society, participates in a wide range of patriotic activities throughout the year dressed in their authentic Continental Line uniforms and militia-style outfits. Most of these activities are open to the public, and we encourage everyone to attend.
If you are already a member, you can visit the Members and Login section by entering your username and password. There you will find a complete roster of chapter members, along with current and past issues of the newsletter, the chapter’s Constitution and By-Laws, and various reports from past meetings. The chapter’s online newsletter, The Long Rifleman, is published monthly and contains not only chapter news but articles covering events and personalities from the American Revolution as well as other periods of our nation’s history.
If you are interested in history and the founding of this great nation, you have come to the right place!
