DAR's Americana Collection houses manuscripts and imprints pertaining to the history of Colonial America, the Revolutionary War period and the Early National period to 1830. The collection is also home to diaries, letters, household inventories, samples of colonial-era currency, court records, birth and marriage records, land deeds and grants and military documents. The Americana Collection is intended for research use by DAR members, staff, and by the general public, including students.
