Happy Fourth of July

Happy Independence Day!

Sarah's Notebook

July 4th Trundlebed Tales I’ve actually been working on a Fourth of July post for awhile because the National Archives has put up a lot of video about their celebrations the last two years on their YouTube Channel and I’ve slowly getting them watched and organized, but since I didn’t get finished, instead watch this fascinating video about the recasing and care of the Declaration of Independence and a mystery handprint [my guess is it’s from the guys in National Treasure 🙂 ]

Declaration of Independence:

There has been a movement lately to get people to read the Declarataion of Independence on Independence Day which I think is well worth doing, know your rights. Find the text, high quality photos of the original, and more at the National Archives.

Click on “Read Transcript” to get to the words in typeface.

Also, remember this year is the 200th anniversary of Star Spangled Banner flag.
