Happy Fourth of July

This presentation of the Declaration of Independence to the members of the Second Continental Congress was painted by John Turnbull in 1817 and hangs in the Capitol Rotunda. 

On this day that we celebrate our independence, remember also those who have given their lives to keep our independence. 

Our freedom has a price.  Rita Bay
