MONROE - The Col. Benjamin Harrison Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution is participating in the national celebration to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the founding of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. All women who can document descent from a Revolutionary War veteran are encouraged to join the service organization, which has promoted historic preservation, education and patriotism since its formation in 1890. "Our chapter, which was organized in 1919, with some members of the Shullsburg Chapter organized in 1914, carries out the important mission of the National Society here on the local level," said chapter Regent Barb Nemec.
