Happy Independence Day!
I decided to celebrate on the 3rd as it was on the 2nd of July when the Continental Congress voted to adopt the Virgina Resolution. They waited to announce it until the 4th of July waiting for a formal declaration to be prepared. It was John Hancock who signed on the 4th and his name alone stood until August 4th when an embossed copy was prepared.
So, there's your little bit of trivial for the week. I am listening to W. Cleon Skousen present a 12 hour presentation on the Miracle of America. It's simple to follow with the student study guide, yet quite interesting regarding our founding.
For instance, did you know that the federal and state legislatures, under Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8 and Section 10, states that neither can grant nobility status. Good thinking after dealing with the whole European status code. Just a little something I learned today.
The Miracle of America is a great way to introduce yourself to the greatness of beauty of America.
