If you're like many Americans then you'll be traveling this weekend for festivities related to our nation's Independence Day! Whether you live in a historic area like Colonial Williamsburg, Historic Yorktown where the last great battle of the Revolutionary War took place, Philadelphia, Washington DC, or points much further west in our great country, we at Colonial Quills hope you'll remember what our freedom means.
We're free to worship as we please. We don't tolerate taxation without representation. We're guaranteed certain rights. Like the choice to attend a small town parade to celebrate. To look up in awe as fireworks light up overhead, in my case over the Straits of Mackinac where within a short distance another country, Canada, has its shores. (Canada has a celebration July 1st, also sending up fireworks over the Great Lakes and elsewhere, but independence won without a war.)
