About the Patton Chapter
WELCOME-- The General George S. Patton, Jr., Chapter of the California Society of the Sons of the American Revolution is dedicated to patriotic, historical, and educational activities, including the perpetuation of the memory of those who, by their services or sacrifices during the war of the American Revolution, achieved the independence of the American people.

  • encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution;
  • acquire and preserve the records of the individual services of the patriots of the war, as well as documents, relics, and landmarks;
  • mark the scenes of the Revolution by appropriate memorials;
  • celebrate the anniversaries of the prominent events of the war and of the Revolutionary period;
  • foster true patriotism;
  • maintain and defend the institutions of American freedom, and
