Daughters of the American Revolution
Binghamton, New York
The Tuscarora Chapter was organized on
October 12, 1895, in Binghamton, New York. "Tuscarora" was selected
for our chapter name because the 6th Nation of the Iroquois chose the
confluence of the Chenango and Susquehanna rivers (where Binghamton is
situated) and the valleys nearby for their villages. The Tuscarora, along with
the Oneida, were the only members of the Iroquois confederacy who chose to
fight with the colonists against the British in the War for Independence; therefore it seemed appropriate to adopt the name of the
Native Americans who were the original lords of this soil.
Tuscarora meets on the third Saturday of
each month March - June and September - December. No meetings in January,
July or August. Time is 1 p.m. unless otherwise scheduled. Call to make sure.
