To perpetuate the memory and the spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence, to promote the development of an enlightened public opinion, and to foster patriotic citizenship-- these are the objectives of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
The Twentieth Star DAR Chapter was organized in 1967, in Hattiesburg, MS, by Mrs. George C. Chancellor. When Mississippi, the 20th state, was admitted to the Union in 1817, the flag with the arrangement of 20 stars in the form of a star was designed and was flown in 1818-1819. It was called the Great Star Flag and it gives the chapter it's name.
