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.
