The Society of the Cincinnati is a historic organization with branches in the United States and France founded in 1783 to preserve the ideals and fellowship of the Revolutionary War officers and to pressure the government to honor pledges it had made to officers who fought for American independence. Now in its third century, the Society is a nonprofit historical and educational organization that promotes public interest in the American Revolution through its library and museum collections, exhibitions, programs, publications, and other activities.
Membership was generally limited to officers who had served at least three years in the Continental Army or Navy but included officers of the French Army and Navy above certain ranks.
George Washington was elected the first President General of the Society. He served from December 1783, until his death in 1799. The second President General was Alexander Hamilton.
Its members have included many distinguished military and political leaders in the history of the country, beginning with 23 signers of the United States Constitution. The Cincinnati is the oldest military society in continuous existence in North America.
