General John A. Sutter Chapter was named for John Augustus Sutter who received a military appointment and a large land grant of some 76 square miles from the Mexican government. He built Sutter's Fort on the mouth of the American River in 1839. The fort is famous for its association with the Donner Party, the California Gold Rush, and the formation of Sacramento. It is notable for its proximity to the end of the California and Siskiyou Trails for which it served as a waystation. Today, of the original fort, only the adobe and oak central two-story building remains. The fort's outer walls and rooms have been reconstructed.

We welcome any woman for membership who is over 18 years of age and is descended from a man or woman who aided in achieving American Independence during the period between April 19, 1775, and November 26, 1783. Most chapter members are from the Sacramento and surrounding areas, and local residency is not a requirement for membership in any chapter.
