Independence Day is more than a chance for family and friends throughout the country to gather for barbecues and fireworks displays, it is an annual celebration to commemorate the courage and faith of our founding fathers in their pursuit of liberty.

Uncover the history behind America’s birthday and the sacrifices made by the extraordinary leaders who, at great personal risk, struggled to unite a young nation. Read the Declaration of Independence that laid down the foundation for the U.S. Constitution, endorsing the fundamental principles of freedom we still uphold to this day.

Check out the article at The History Channel.

I've been watching the series American Revolution on The History Channel. It usually comes on Sundays at 9pm Central, but it will also be on tonight at 11. It's definitely worth watching!
