Happy Independence Day!
The date will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be 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.
I love the Fourth of July, even though I love all things British and Scottish! I'm grateful for those Scots preachers who came to the colonies and preached Freedom from tyranny!
I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating Freedom and remembering all the Founding Father's risked to bring us a nation like non other!
