I had a fine Independence Day yesterday at Schoharie County's Old Stone Fort, where local Militia* read speeches and letters from Abigail Adams, Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, George Washington, and let us never forget: Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence.
The Old Stone Fort was originally built as a Reformed Dutch Church, but the calls of two Wars would force it into Military service - first as a refuge for local settlers during the Revolutionary War, and second as a armory for the Union Army during the Civil War.
I just love Independence Day.
To me it doesn't matter who is or who isn't President of our great Nation, and it doesn't matter which legislation has or hasn't been signed into law, because we live in America, where freedom will always reign, and where success will always be celebrated.
So how was your Independence Day?
