July 3, 1776 Independence day “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.”
Who was this man? The second US President, John Adams.
I trust you will thank God for your freedom. Now get out there and have a good time with your friends and family and make some noise!
