Happy 4th of July Everyone!

"The day will be the most memorable in America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade...bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this day forward, forevermore."

-John Adams, in a letter to his wife, Abigail,after the Continental Congress decided to proclaim the American colonies independent from Britain.
