America was created by men and women who dared to dream of liberty and a better life through sacrifice, grit and sheer determination. They overcame great odds to achieve their dream. In 2026, we will celebrate our 250th birthday. It will be a time for all Americans to come together and reflect on the sacrifices of those who came before us and celebrate the birth of the United States of America as we continue to strive for that more perfect union.
While July 4th is the most famous date we use to celebrate the United States' birthday, the struggle for freedom lasted much longer. This birthday celebration we have named America 250 SAR will start in 2023 with the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. This celebration will continue through 2033 to commemorate the departure of the British Army from New York City. There will be many more moments from the Revolutionary War timeline that will be commemorated over those 10 years.
"Our Patriot ancestors struggled and rebelled for over a decade—and actively engaged in open warfare for eight years to guarantee our liberty. We owe them nothing less."
-Davis Lee Wright, President General- Sons of the American Revolution
