The Order of ‘76 was an anti-New Deal organization formed from a meeting of various nationalist leaders on March 10, 1934.[1] The group was headed by Royal Scott Gulden. Membership was restricted to those who could prove their lineage back to the founding of the country.

The organization was originally formed to monitor the activities of communists in America. In addition it favored mandatory military training of America’s youth and the elimination of child labor, fingerprinting of all citizens and the deportation alien criminals, and a program for old age pensions and unemployment compensation.[2]

By 1937 the group merged with the Silver Shirts.
