Happy Fourth of July! A day our congress in 1776 approved the Declaration of Independence. Btw a great document to visit at the National Archives in Washington, DC, and reflect on those years past and what our forefathers lived through. 13 colonies signed this declaration. Yet, Great Britain did not accept it until they were defeated in 1783. And during present times, they are one of our closest allies. On that note, we wish you a safe & marvelous Independence Day.
