Watch the above animation of the Betsy Ross flag proudly billowing in a glorious sunset as you listen to the USAF Band and Chorus play The Star Spangled Banner, our National Anthem.
“O ! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,— Francis Scott Key, The Star Spangled Banner
O’er the Land of the free, and the home of the brave?”
The Greatest Nation on earth, the united States of America, was born on the 4th of July, 1776 with the signing of The Declaration of Independence, one of the most monumental documents to ever shape human history. The signing of the Declaration of Independence demarcated the line in the sand that the American citizens drew upon which to make a desperate stand for freedom against overwhelming tyranny. The Declaration of Independence’s immortal words provide a bright beacon of liberty in a world of dark despotism.
“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.”
“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence
Second Continental Congress, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 1776
