Brief history

It all dates to 1776 on July 4 th , when the United States was formed. It all started when the original thirteen colonies claimed their independence from Great Britain. One of the country’s founding father’s, Thomas Jefferson, drafted the Declaration of Independence and the rest is history. The country grew and grew and it has become to be what we all know today.

This marvelous holiday carries a historic meaning of freedom and independence. It is a memorable time to recognize how fortunate they are to live in “the land of the free”, as it sung in the Star-Spangled Banner, the United States’ national anthem.
