                       MISSISSIPPI SOCIETY OF 1812

PURPOSE: To implement Living History educational programs in American History to Mississippi students, K – 12.

GOAL: To leave all students with the knowledge that they are citizens of the first and most exceptional democratic republic on earth, created by an idea called Liberty. And, that they will have the freedom to build a rewarding life of their choice if that liberty is sustained.

MISSION: Bring History alive to school children through outdoor and classroom instruction, covering the 40 year Period of Independence, 1775 – 1815. And, to perpetuate a sense of patriotism, love of country, principles of the founding fathers, and their civil obligations to sustain their freedom.


In carrying out this objective, the Sons of Independence will:


1. Educate all students irrespective of race, religion, or creed.

2. Include America’s Colonial Period (1607 – 1774), and Post War Period (1816 – 1840), to bring into perspective our 40 year Period of Declaring, Winning, and Structuring Liberty.
