THE FIRST FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATIONS WEREN’T MUCH DIFFERENT THAN TODAY’S.
Our founding fathers also liked fireworks! Read this newspaper clipping from 1777!
July 18, 1777 issue of the Virginia Gazette describes the July 4 celebration in Philadelphia:
“The evening was closed with the ringing of bells, and at night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks, which began and concluded with thirteen rockets on the commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated. Every thing was conducted with the greatest order and decorum, and the face of joy and gladness was universal.”
Davis County Realtors always wishes our family and friends to know the face of joy and gladness!!
