Today’s Rock River Chapter NSDAR, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), is a result of the combination of two previous chapters, both of Whiteside County. The Morrison Chapter NSDAR, organized in 1903, and the Rock River Chapter NSDAR, organized in 1917. Both chapters were active in their communities and had supported DAR projects on state and national levels. In 1995, the two chapters merged. The new chapter retained the name, Rock River Chapter. We celebrated our 100th anniversary in 2018.
