For Independence Day

     I'm feeling grateful for the freedoms we enjoy here in the United States and for
     the Founding Fathers who had the insight and inspiration to claim independence.

This painting, Declaration of Independence, is by John Trumbull.  It is a very large 12' x 18'.  If you can get your hands on a $2.00 bill, you'll see a green and white image of this painting on the back.  You can learn more about the painting, the men included in the painting who signed the Declaration, and the men who signed but are not in the painting here.

I hope you've had a great Independence Day.
