Happy 4th!

Today we celebrate the birth of our great nation. There were a lot of events leading up to declaring independence. If you’re interested, a great place to start is the Siege at Boston. It was the beginning of the Revolutionary War that would run from late 1775 to 1783. The Constitution, the document that defines our nation, would be adopted in 1788.

I’d also recommend 1776 by David McCullough.
