Independence Day 1840’s style


We had a really special Independence Day at Old Sturbridge Village. It was so exciting to be a part of a moment in time gone by. The girls really enjoyed the parade (1840’s style, of course). I loved the rousing rendition of the Declaration of Independence. Thrills me to the core every time.

Thanks OSV, for a lovely day! And Happy 236th Birthday, America.
