Happy Birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!

July 4, 1776 - Late in the afternoon, church bells rang out over Philadelphia heralding the final adoption of the Declaration of Independence.
Hop over to the link and take a few minutes to read this very important and eloquently written document by Our Founding Fathers .
This country is rich in history and we should never forget or forsake it.

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! - Patrick Henry March 23, 1775
