Guess where we went yesterday?
We went to Fort Stanwix in Rome, to hear the reading of the Declaration of Independence read aloud, and give our huzzahs to Liberty. What a fabulous time! We also got to sign our names on a copy, and “…for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”
We also attended the t- e- a- event at the Rome City Hall. We got to meet some amazing people, and hear some terrific speeches. And I just loved the flags. This was the official flag of one of the Massachusetts regiments during the American Revolution.
I took loads and loads of photos, and have lots to say about both terrific events! Stay tuned. 🙂
