This particular organization of this name was founded in 1870 as
an auxiliary to the Order of United American Mechanics. These flagholders
date to before 1915 when Daughters of Liberty became the Sons and Daughters
of Liberty. See the pages for its sibling organizations for a discussion
of its anti-immigration, anti Catholic, anti-whatever positions.
The name Daughters of Lliberty was earlier used to describe women who
worked underground, along with the Sons of Liberty, in opposing the Stamp
Act and other constrictions imposed by the British during Colonial times.
They continued to operate during the American Revolution. That early organization
has no connection whatever to this nineteenth century group.
