Speaking of fireworks... did you know that Congress first authorized fireworks for Independence Day celebrations on July 4, 1777? Now that's Congressional Action we can all support!
I'll close out this 4th of July trivia by pointing out Georgia's signers of the Declaration - Button Gwinnett, Lyman Hall and George Walton. Go check out the Signers Monument in their honor next time you're in Augusta.
Whatever you're doing today to celebrate the holiday, please remember to have fun and stay safe. Most importantly, be thankful for our brave women and men, at home and abroad, who protect our independence every day!
Happy FOURTH of July! --Liz
