Eleven Score and Fifteen Years Ago...

Eleven score and fifteen years ago our forefathers brought forth a new's our Nation's BIRTHDAY!!

What a magnificent work that Thomas Jefferson penned ... see the text here.

And the Trumbull painting of the presentation of the Declaration to the Cointinental Congress...

Thank you, gentlemen. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Freedom is so precious. May our leaders be wise enough to preserve it, and may our citizens be brave enough to defend it.

For the Seaver folks in Chula Vista, today will be a day of rest. We will watch the Padres baseball game on TV, then go to church for a picnic with friends, capped by the fireworks display at 8:30 p.m. over the Country Club grounds - less than a quarter mile away. Big booms. 
On the genealogy front, I will write a bit, work on a presentation, and probably go hunting graves in Find-a-Grave to add to my genealogy database.
