Happy 4th to everyone!! I have been doing a little digging on some trivia concerning the Declaration Of Independence and found this from the History channel. I hope everyone realizes these signers were putting their lives and wealth on the line. It wasn't a mere formality, they were telling King George III to go take a hike. Enjoy your holiday with your friends and family!!

This is Independence Day, which falls on July 4th.  We are not celebrating a date. We are celebrating our creation as a new country, separate from Great Britain. Our forefathers fought TWO wars to create and retain that independence.  Both took an enormous toll in lives and property on a sparse and relatively poor population.

Appropriate movies for today are: April Morning, 1776, Mister Smith goes to Washington, The Patriot, and the HBO series on John Adams.  I would ignore the Disney movie 'Hamilton' as it is politically-correct, revisionist history.  There have been some excellent documentaries about the American Revolution.  If you can find the one History Channel did in the '90's, it was pretty good without bowing to the PC crowd.

There is an absolutely awful movie called Taking Liberty that was a pilot for a proposed TV series.  It is notable only as it has David Ogden Stiers as Benjamin Franklin, the adorable, beautiful, and sweet Sophie Ward (sigh) as the female lead, and a a couple of amusing scenes involving a handsome and dashing British Highland soldier (me).

Technically the big deal of agreeing to independence was on the 2nd.  The next two days were just administrative haggling over the paperwork. 😁


Hope everyone has a happy and safe time celebrating!

Thank you very much for the refresher on what I learned while in Middle school and High school history classes. It's a shame our young people today aren't able to be taught as we were taught!!!

Happy 4th to everybody! :usa:

I won't be going to any parties. But I will be sitting in my driveway watching the fireworks. My neighbors put on a great show!  :up:

 I had some neighbors like that once but it had nothing to do with fireworks, at least not the kind you watch. :D
