On this date 234 years ago 56 men from the original 13 colonies signed a DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. By signing their names to this they officially declared themselves in open rebellion to the crown, their lives and fortunes forfeit, and war with the greatest naval and land forces in the world. They also officially declared that God creates us all imbued with inherent rights that no government is permitted to take. But the part we often overlook. They declared it officially! Have a happy 4th and raise a cold one to the original “Band of Brothers”.
