I am an early American history major and love all things early America. Did you know that Thomas Jefferson and John Adams both died on July 4th, just hours apart, on the 50th Anniversary of our independence? Many don't. Also, did you know that Independence Day really should be celebrated on July 2nd?
Today is a great day to learn some American history and maybe teach someone else. Here are some resources you may find interesting today. Happy Independence Day!
