The following markers and activities are just a few of the accomplishments of the Baton Rouge Chapter:

  • A bronze marker, commemorating the Revolutionary Battle of Baton Rouge was placed on North Boulevard near the Old State Capitol.
  • Two Live Oak Trees dedicated to George and Martha Washington were planted near the old Arsenal on the New Capitol Grounds and marked with bronze tablets set in granite as part of the George Washington Bicentennial.
  • Through the efforts of Mrs. Annie Laurie Moody, the State Legislature of 1938 enacted a law making September 21, the Anniversary of the Battle of Baton Rouge, a recognized State Holiday.
  • A bronze marker commemorating the Battle of Baton Rouge was placed on the New State Capitol Grounds as a Golden Jubilee Project.
  • A grave marker was placed on the grave of Patriot Oliver Pollock in Mississippi. Oliver Pollock was estimated to have been the fourth largest financial contributor to the American Revolution after France, Spain and Holland.
  • Due to the extraordinary effort of Mrs. E.N. McAllister, a very valuable technical collection of genealogical books acquired by the chapter have been presented to the East Baton Rouge Parish Library (Bluebonnet Regional Branch). This was the origin of the State DAR Library.
  • The chapter organized the Pierre Joseph de Favrot Society Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.). The Children of the American Revolution is the oldest lineage organization for children in the United States. Membership is open to any child, with the same qualifications of DAR and SAR, from the ages of birth through the 22nd year.
