The Indiana Society of the
Children in 1776
The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution trains good citizens, develops leaders, and promotes love of the United States of America and its heritage among young people.
Children of the American Revolution Creed
I believe in the Children of the American Revolution as an organization for the training of young people in true patriotism and love of country. In order that they shall be better fitted for American Citizenship. As a descendant of the Founders of my Country, I believe that my birthright brings a responsibility to carry on their work, and that as the boys and girls of 1776 took an active part in The War for Independence, so the boys and girls of today have a definite work to do to their country. As a member of the Children of the American Revolution, I believe it is my duty to use my influence to create a deeper love of country, a loyal respect for its constitution and reverence for its flag, among the young people with whom I come in contact.
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots Sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it: to support its constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its Flag; and defend it against all enemies.
Pledge of Allegiance
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
