The first Society of Colonial Wars was established in 1892, and became the General Society of Colonial Wars in 1893. The General Society is a tax exempt organization that charters individual State Societies, and it is in one or more of the State Societies that an individual holds membership. The aggregate of State Societies constitutes the General Society.


The Preamble of the Articles of Incorporation for the General Society reads:
"WHEREAS, It is desirable that there should be adequate celebrations commemorative of the events of Colonial History which took place within the period beginning with the settlement of Jamestown, VA., May 13, 1607, and preceding the battle of Lexington, April 19, 1775;

THEREFORE, The Society of Colonial Wars is instituted to perpetuate the memory of those events, and of the men who, in military, naval, and civil positions of high trust and responisibility, 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.
