Fourth of July

The Perfect Bath

Independence Hall was completed in Philadelphia in 1753. It became the principal meeting place of the Second Continental Congress from 1775-1783. It was designed by Edmund Wooley and Andrew Hamilton and was built of red brick in the Georgian style. The Founding Fathers wrote, signed and read the Declaration of Independence from this site. I thought this image would be a great remembrance for the Fourth of July holiday and remind us why we celebrate it. Happy Fourth.
