South Atlantic District History

In 1949, the South Atlantic District (SAD) of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution was established as a functional unit of the National Society. It consisted of five state societies: North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Virginia.

The South Atlantic District isn’t an entity in its own right. It’s an integral part of the National Society and exists to carry out the functions of the National Society. The VPG is elected by Congress as a national officer. According to protocol, he is the second ranked officer when he is in his district. Under this circumstance, he is only outranked by the President General. Thus, one of his functions is to be a representative of the President General when he isn’t present and to be the host of the President General when he is present.

The VPG, as well as all district members, are tasked to assist in the implementation of the goals established each year by the President General. The South Atlantic District has been and will continue to be a leader in achieving and implementing the goals of our President General.
