The Origin Of Our National Anthem,  CLICK HERE

The Star-Spangled Banner Celebrates 200 Years.

Francis Scott Key watching the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the Dawn’s early light of

September 13, 1814. A lawyer, he was part of a delegation negotiating the release of American prisoners and was compelled to remain on board a Royal Navy warship. The night’s intense bombardment inspired his poem “ The Star-Spangled Banner,” which became the words of the Unites States’ national anthem. (Print after Thomas Moran; Library of Congress. Caption: Osprey publishing.)

".Independence Day."

"Independence Day" or Fourth of July is the annual celebration

of the United States' "birthday," the date of the passage of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. The first celebrations included bell ringing, bonfires, processions, and speeches. In some towns, these celebrations also had a mock funeral for the king, symbolizing the end of America's rule by the British monarchy. It was not until 1941, however, that Congress officially established the Fourth

of July as a legal holiday.

Independence Day or Fourth of July is the annual celebration

of the United States' "birthday," the date of the passage of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776.

In some towns, these celebrations also had a mock funeral for the king, symbolizing the end of America's rule by the British monarchy. It was not until 1941, however, that Congress officially established the Fourth of July as a legal holiday. The date could easily have been July 2, the day on which the Continental Congress approved a resolution for independence, or August 2, the day on which the members of Congress actually signed the document. But it was on July 4 that the final text of the Declaration, which had been drafted by Thomas Jefferson, was ratified. By 1788, the Fourth of July also commemorated the U.S. Constitution as well, which had recently been approved by ten states.

For each of us the 4th of July - "Independence Day" means something different. For some it's a day off from work, for others it's the excitement of a parade with festively decorated floats, the sounds of marching bands, clowns, a menagerie of assorted animals, riders on horseback, the thrill of an evening filled with spectacular fireworks displays, and a time that should be shared with family, friends and loved ones.

 

Many families have sons, daughters, spouses, and friends currently serving our nation in the military. Regardless of one's political viewpoint or party affiliation, as we celebrate the 4th of July this year, let each of us take a moment to reflect on and celebrate the dedication that all members of our armed forces, both past and present, have demonstrated in serving their country.

Battle of Chapultepec

The Battle of Chapultepec in September

1847 was a United States victory over Mexican forces holding Chapultepec Castle in Mexico City during the Mexican-American War. The castle, sitting atop a 200-foot (60 m) tall hill, was an important position for the defense of the city. Its capture paved the way for the fall of Mexico City.

The efforts of the U.S. Marines in this

battle and subsequent occupation of Mexico City are memorialized by the opening lines of the Marines' Hymn,

"From the Halls of Montezuma..."

M1 Garand, A Gas Operated, Clip-Fed Semiautomatic Rifle.

A rifle designed in the 1920s by John C. Garand, a Canadian. Once accepted

by the U.S. Army, it was the world's first semi-automatic rifle to be in military service. It had a significant advantage over bolt-action rifles because of its semi-automatic mechanism. The shooter can shoot as fast as he can pull the trigger.

SGT. STUBBY - WAR DOG HERO! 

Meet America's first war dog, a stray Pit Bull/Terrier mix, named Stubby. He became Sgt. Stubby, was the most decorated war dog of World War I and the only dog to be promoted to sergeant through combat.

One day he appeared at Yale

Field in New Haven, Connecticut; while a group of soldiers were training, stopping to make

friends with soldiers as they drilled. One soldier, Corporal Robert Conroy,

developed a fondness for the dog. He named him Stubby because of his short legs. When it became time for the outfit to ship out, Conroy hid Stubby on board the troop ship. In order to keep the dog, the private taught him to salute his commanding officers warming their hearts to him.

.

Stubby served with the 102nd Infantry, 26th (Yankee) Division in the trenches

in France for 18 months and participated in four offensives and 18 battles, 

A dog of war: Sgt. Stubby even helped capture WWI Germans. The loud noise

of the bombs and gun fire did not bother him. He was never content to stay in

the trenches but went out and found wounded soldiers.
