Happy Fourth of July


On this day in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress, setting the 13 colonies on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation. As always, this most American of holidays will be marked by parades, fireworks and backyard barbecues across the country. Just a bit of trivia.
– In July 1776, the estimated number of people living in the newly independent nation was 2.5 million.
– On July 4, 2008, the nation's population will be 304 million.
Have a Happy 4th !!!
