Another story will involve the story of Deborah Jannette, who fought in the Revolutionary War dressed as a man. Her true identity wasn't discovered until after the war.
DAR members will sing songs from 1776, accompanied by the W.F. Holt pipe organ, which was recently restored and will be played by Bill Thornburg of Holtville.
"We have worked all year with each of the several ladies in the chapter, designing and making clothing of the colonial period and at each meeting," said Anne Horne, president of the local DAR chapter and an El Centro resident.
"Music from 1776 is very difficult to find," said Horne.
"It's a major project for us because we're a brand new chapter. To do a presentation of this size has been a challenge but we've had fun getting it ready."
The performance will start at 7 p.m. Friday during the Imperial County Historical Society meeting at the Pioneers' Museum, Highway 111 and Aten Road near Imperial.
Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. for $6 but reservations must be made by calling 352-3211 before Thursday.
Another DAR project will include the opening of a DAR Revolutionary War display in the veterans gallery inside the Pioneers' Museum.
"We have recently been granted some space in the gallery at the museum by the Imperial Valley Veterans Council," said Horne.
The first display will be on women in the American Revolution and will open in September.
The display will be changed twice a year. The second display will feature African-Americans who fought in the revolution.
A third project will include the dedication of a bronze DAR marker in honor of soldiers who were a part of the 13 original colonies. The marker will be placed in the center of veterans memorial plaza at the Pioneers Museum.
The dedication will be Feb. 18, which is President's Day.
