"The Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick for the Relief of Emigrants from Ireland '' is the oldest Irish fraternal charitable organization in America. It was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on St. Patrick's Day, 17 March 1771. The men who comprised the FSOSP back in the day were some of the most influential patriots of the country. Many had distinguished themselves in the early days of the Continental Congress.
