A Review of Ten Years free pdf Excerpt from A Review of Ten Years: 1899-1909 Ten years ago the number of members recorded in the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution was twenty-seven thousand four hundred and thirty-two- this year the Registrar General records seventy-two thousand seven hundred and fifty seven, and a voting membership in the Eighteenth Continental Congress of one thousand, four hundred and eight- the actual membership being fifty-eight thousand and twenty-four. Ten years ago there seemed to be, in the National Society, three great objects of interest- the collection of funds for the proposed Memorial Hall, a Federal Law to prevent and punish the desecration of the Flag, and the amending of the Constitution and by-laws of the National Society. To a large majority a fourth interest seemed to be the defeat of Mrs. Donald McLean for the office of President General, an office for which many thought her to be peculiarly well fitted. At the end of ten years we have seen our dream - that which, for many years, seemed as if always to be our "Castle of Air" - become a reality. Our Memorial Continental Hall is finished - its pure white marble walls shine and glisten through the beautiful foliage of the trees in Washington Monument Park. Within, the building so rarely beautiful in the simplicity of design, seems indeed a temple of patriotism as without, it is a monument to heroism. As the years have passed each Congress seems more disposed to pass that law so much desired, which is deigned to protect the stars and stripes from misuse and commercialism, but the goal has not yet been reached. The States however have not waited - but in rapid succession have enacted laws, which serve to protect from desecration, the flag of the United States, within their borders, and now more than thirty States bear this law upon their statute books. At the close of the sixth year of the past decade Mrs. Donald McLean was elected President General, and for four years has given to this Society a splendid administration and has raised our standard far above that conceived by its founders and Charter members. Steadily has the Society increased in numbers, and with numbers has come a unity of purpose in the effort to preserve and promote the spirit of Patriotism throughout our land. The preservation of historic spots - the celebration of anniversaries and the building of monuments is the foundation upon which we have built. We have taught the unthinking people of our country that without a reverence for the past, without public records of those who founded our nation and endured the hardships of the pioneer - we could not be a truly great people.
