Current Display: 4th of July

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,

that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,

that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

-- Declaration of Independence

Let Freedom Ring, Ospreys! The Fourth of July (also known as Independence Day or July 4th) celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. By doing so, the Continental Congress officially declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subjects of Great Britain and were therefore united, free, and independent states: the United States of America. While it became a federal holiday in 1941, the Fourth of July has been celebrated since the American Revolution with fireworks, parades, gatherings of friends and family, and more.

This online display will be updated as resources become available. You are invited to email suggestions or recommendations.
