On the Fourth

With the thunder rolling and rumbling like cannon firing, with the promise of fireworks of celebration later tonight, I give you the following from 1776. May everyone have a safe and happy Fourth. As you celebrate our nation’s independence, take a few minutes to think about what the cornerstones of the nation are and remember the sacrifices made to secure and protect our independence.

  1. I had the privileged of seeing 1776 last year (I think) but was unable to find it playing anywhere this year. Shame since it is a good flick. William Daniels does a great job. (and some of the songs are cute)

    1. I finally found it on TCM at something like midnight on the 4th and set the DVR for it. Now I have it for next year — assuming the DVR doesn’t go belly up between now and then.
