Happy Independence Day.    Take a 20-question quiz about the Declaration here . . .  make a joyful noise when you get your score.

Or . . .

Just read some facts about the D of I here . . . .  Then ring the bells and

beat the drum and

before you bathe in the light of illuminations . . .

read the actual Declaration here.

or listen to a famous voice (1957) read it here.

Celebrate those who ensure this

independence . . . . and our right to disagree with each other about what it means.  After all, not even the several dozen signers 236 years ago could agree about what to say and when to sign.

Happy and smart Independence Day.
