Happy Fourth of July

John Adams on what he thought would be the future of July 4th Independence Day celebrations:

"I believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be celebrated by pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other..."

It seems that we're fulfilling his dream.

Happy 4th!
