Free and Independent

Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence publicly announced to the world the unanimous decision of the American colonies to declare themselves free and independent states, absolved from any allegiance to Great Britain. Though eloquent, the Declaration was only a statement of intent; a bloody, eleven-year war followed.  Today, remember the thousands who gave their lives for our liberty…and stay safe while you celebrate our nation’s birthday.
