The Society of Colonial Wars was created to perpetuate the memory of the events, and the men who, "in military, naval, and civil positions of high trust and responsibility, by their acts or counsel, assisted in the establishment, defense, and preservation of the American Colonies, and who were in truth founders of this Nation."
