Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Origin of the term "Sons of the Republic"
by Bonjo
It has often been inquired of the Sons of the Republic regarding the origin of our name. Granted, there are other names that are shorter and more easily entered into a Web browser. However, the term has significance to us for a number of reasons.

First, we are, after all, sons of the Republic of the United States of America. We were born and raised in this blessed land. We owe what we have, what we are, and what we will become in our lifetimes to our forebears, our liberties as protected by our government, and most of all, the God that created us and this "more perfect union."

The term "Son of the Republic," however, has additional and less well known significance. The following is a reprint of an account told by General George Washington while at Valley Forge, PA. In this account, General Washington tells of receiving a heavenly messenger who refers to him as "Son of the Republic."
