Happy 4th of July!


Yes, time for your history lesson! On this date in 1776, the
Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental
Congress by the 13 British Colonies in America. The Declara-
tion listed all the grievances of the Colonies against the
British monarch (at the time, King George III) and declared
the Colonies to be free and independent states; it was
unanimously endorsed by all the delegates. As the website
for the History Channel states, this event "marked the cul-
mination of a political process that had begun as a protest
against oppressive restrictions imposed by the mother
country on colonial trade, manufacturing, and political liberty
and had developed into a revolutionary struggle resulting in
the establishment of a new nation." Wow, I couldn't have
said it better myself, Happy 231st Birthday U.S.A.!
