Happy Birthday America!

On July 4, 1776, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States.

John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress, signed the Declaration of Independence. It is said that John Hancock’s signed his name “with a great flourish,” so England’s “King George can read that without spectacles!”

Ronald Reagan

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.

Elmer Davis

With freedom comes responsibility.

Eleanor Roosevelt

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.

Abraham Lincoln

Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.
