The chapter was organized on January 14, 1913, the second to be formed in New Orleans.
The chapter has a vibrant history from the Cotton Ball costume ball where the Daughters dressed as Martha Washington; the participation of events when the Liberty Bell visited New Orleans; actively providing supplies for our troops during WWI, WWII; and currently, sponsoring awards for the schools, teachers, markers, and more for God, Home, and Country.
The New Orleans Chapter National Daughters of the American Revolution celebrated their 102nd anniversary at its January meeting.
