For many of us, the Fourth of July marks the high point of summer events and activities. From barbeques to fireworks to parades, families come together to celebrate the birth of our nation on this important holiday. With summer finally in full swing, schools are out, vacations are planned and children are out enjoying the warm weather.
Along with these great traditions, there is also much more to the Fourth of July than just food and fireworks. Independence Day is a living example of the rich history dating back over two centuries to the founding of our country.
