Historic Tidbit

The Declaration of Independence, the document in which the 13 colonies in America asserted their independence of Great Britain, was enacted July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress. Drafted by Thomas Jefferson and offered as a resolution by Richard Henry Lee, it was signed by 56 patriots.

Known simply as the Fourth of July, Americans celebrate it as a legal holiday with picnics and fireworks. Fly the beautiful U.S. flag on this special day and give thanks for the beautiful country in which we live.
