Yearbook of the Ohio Society of the Sons of the Revolution: February 22, 1919 (Classic Reprint)
There was at this time no active patriotic society in this country. The Society of the Cincinnati, formed in 1783 by the Officers of the Continental Army, had ceased to exist in most of the original states, and where it still retained its organization it was no longer an active force.
The time seemed to be propitious for infusing new life into the Society of the Cincinnati, and with this in mind, Mr. John Austin Stevens presented to the President of the Society, the Hon. Hamilton Fish, the desirability of amending the rules of the Society so as'to enlarge its membership and infuse new vitality into the organization.
These suggestions met with no favor, and on December 18, 1875, Mr. Stevens called together some of his associates in the rooms of the New York Historical Society to discuss the feasibility of founding a new\ patriotic society. The idea was favorably received, and the name Sons of the Revolution agreed upon. A month later, on January 15, 1876, a second meeting was held at which Mr. Stevens presented a constitution. For the society. This was unanimously approved and signed by all present, and Mr. Stevens was authorized to make public announcement of the organiza tion of the new society, and extend an invitation to membership. As there were but few acceptances of this invitation, the project was suspended until circumstances seemed more favorable.
