Have a happy and safe 4th of July Weekend

I would like to wish you a happy & safe 4th Of July Weekend.

Did you know...

- Independence Day was first celebrated in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776.
- The first public Fourth of July event at the White House occured in 1804.
- On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress, looking to promote national pride and unity, adopted the national flag.
- The first Independence Day celebration west of the Mississippi occured at Independence Creek and was celebrated by Lewis and Clark in 1805.
The Liberty Bell sounded from the tower of Independence Hall on July 8, 1776, summoning citizens to gather for the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon.
- Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, died on Independence Day, July 4, 1826.

- In 1941, Congress declared July 4 a federal legal holiday.
- The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence did not sign at the same time, nor did they sign on July 4, 1776. The official event occurred on August 2, 1776, when 50 men signed it. Later that year, five more signed separately and one added his name in a later year. Thomas McKean was the last to sign in January, 1777.
- The origin of Uncle Sam probably began in 1812, when Samuel Wilson was a meat packer who provided meat to the US Army. The meat shipments were stamped with the initials, U.S. Someone joked that the initials stood for "Uncle Sam". This joke eventually led to the idea of Uncle Sam symbolizing the United States government.

- Benjamin Franklin, John Adams & Thomas Jefferson served on the committee that picked the eagle for the national seal (Franklin wanted the turkey.)

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. ~Elmer Davis ~~~ THANK YOU
