Our Friends

The American Independence Museum is proud to partner with national, statewide, and local nonprofits to celebrate our area’s unique heritage.

The Society of the Cincinnati (Click here to learn more)
The Society of the Cincinnati is the nation’s oldest patriotic organization, founded in 1783 by officers of the Continental Army and their French counterparts who served together in the American Revolution. Its mission is to promote knowledge and appreciation of the achievement of American independence and to foster fellowship among its members. The New Hampshire Chapter of the Society of the Cincinnati owns the Museum’s two buildings, and most of its collection.
