Happy 4th July 2019


Recommended Posts

John Adams said we should observe Independence Day on July 2nd, when the Continental Congress actually voted for independence.  Three American Presidents, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe, all died on July 4. President Calvin Coolidge was born on July 4th.  Today,  Nathan’s, on the boardwalk in Coney Island, holds its annual Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4th.  Donald Trump appears to have confused our Independence Day celebration with Russia's May Day observance.
