3 day weekend coming up! Independence Day

4th of July 1

I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

Apple Fall makes this great American Flag Garland at 1 LI.  They are copy/mod so you can use as many as you want and fix the size as you need.

Under an imposed veil of secrecy the U.S. Congress appointed Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert R. Livingston as a committee to draft a declaration of independence from Britain.  Thomas Jefferson was delegated to write the document, John Adams did a first revision followed closely by Benjamin Franklin’s.  Final revisions were done by the entire Committee with 47 alterations made before it was presented to Congress on June 28, 1776. After 39 additional changes Congress voted on July 2 for independence and on July 4 the document was ordered to a final printing.

General George Washington received his copy and on July 9 he gathered several brigades of his Army at 6:00 p.m. for the document to be read “with an audible voice”.  General Washington hoped that this would give his soldiers fresh incentive and the understanding that “the peace and safety of our country depended on them”.

I’ve thought more than once what Divine force was working to place all of these men in our country at this moment in history.  Despite their personal flaws and shortcomings – and there were many – these men were able to lead and inspire others at that time in nothing less than heroic proportions.
