Happy Fourth of July!

"The Birth of Old Glory" by Percy Moran, c. 1917
Hope everyone has a safe and happy fourth of July, as the United States of America celebrates the anniversary of their independence from Great Britain. I am reading Betsy Ross and The Making of America by Marla R. Miller, and it is very interesting to see how the Colonial Americans developed into these wonderfully United States of America as we know them now.
