Keynote Speaker:
Rex Ruth portraying
Samuel Adams


Rex Ruth has brought America’s history alive by speaking to public, political, historical and religious audiences as Daniel Webster, President Polk, the Rev. Aaron Cool, California's first two Senators - William M. Gwinn, and John Charles Fremont the Great Explorer - and he is now presenting to listeners Mr. Samuel Adams - one of America’s most noted Founding Fathers. Rex uses these historical personages to encourage the modern American to dedicate their everyday lives to further the cause of preserving American liberty for themselves and their posterity.

Rex is a native Californian of American/Mexican descent raised primarily in California’s San Joaquin Valley where he and his family were migrant field workers for many years. He holds a degree in theatrical arts, mass communication and education with an emphasis on history. He authored the book “Blood Fire and Faith; How Liberty Became a Country” and is a lecturer and teacher who now lives in Northern California with his wife Janna. Rex was a member of Old Sacramento Living History Program in Old Sacramento CA, as well as Highway 50 Wagon Train and a Docent at the California Gold Discovery Park at Coloma California, a position he has held from 2001to 2016 where he is an invited guest speaker at the California Gold Live event in Coloma.

Rex traveled extensively throughout California in 2010 and 2012 on a State of California Constitutional Bus Tour where he along with others spoke about the history and development of the U.S. Constitution.

Who We Are
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are direct descendants of those patriots that achieved the independence of the American people. The objectives of our organization are intended to perpetuate a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
The Purpose of Our Society
The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic United States 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Preserve the memory of those whose service and sacrifice during the American Revolution secured independence for the American people.
  • Unite and promote fellowship among their descendants.
  • Inspire them and the Community with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
  • Encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution.
  • Maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, and the value of American citizenship.
  • Promote the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution.
