Happy 4th of July, my friends! We were spoiled for the past few years living in Hoboken and being able to have front row seats for the Macy’s fireworks. They were set off on barges in the Hudson River which separates Hoboken from Manhattan, and each year my son cried on my shoulder. Now it’s time to see how Pennsylvania compares! Maybe it’ll be a tear-free year :)
Both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence later to serve as Presidents of the United States, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. How weird is that?
Enjoy your day everyone!
