Happy Fourth of July!

We hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July.  In celebration of our country's founding, here are some interesting online historical exhibits:

The U.S. National Archive "Documented Rights" Exhibit states that "Since the signing of the Declaration of Independence, our rights as citizens of the United States have been debated, contested, amended, and documented."  You can view this exhibit online here. Also, there are related photographs in the U. S. National Archives' Flickr photo collections.  Two of these photos are shown below:
