"I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death." - Patrick Henry







Welcome to my next chapter in holiday celebrations! I just love history...especially American History. So with that in mind, I'm going to include links to American History sites, Fourth of July screensavers and other neat, and hopefully, useful stuff.

But first, here is my favorite verse of the "Star Spangled Banner" (I think it's the fourth or fifth verse.)



Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!





Okay...here's where I get to play "teacher" again...

This site has very interesting and little know facts on the Liberty Bell

Did you know that Besty Ross was the eighth of 17 children...she eloped with John Ross to New Jersey...had seven children of her own...and her full name was Elizabeth Griscom Ross Asburn Claypoole? To find out more, click here... Betsy Ross Homepage
