Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution can apply for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution. Women must document their lineage back to an ancestor who aided the cause of American independence. These efforts may come through military, civil, or patriotic service and must occur during the period between 19 April 1775 (Battle of Lexington) and 26 November 1783 (withdrawal of British Troops from New York).
