Bang! Boom! Hurray!
Happy birthday America. Our favorite uncle – Uncle Sam – turns 232 years old today.
We all know that the Declaration of Independence was drafted on this day in 1776 in Philadelphia.
The document declared the 13 American colonies’ independence from Great Britain. Some seven years later, America, after a long, bloody battle, had won its freedom from the mother country. Battles waged from Bunker Hill to Hanging Rock and plenty of points in between. America showed great determination, our country’s hallmark ever since.
