Happy Fourth Of July!
I once again have compiled a collection of imagery that reminds me of the Fourth of July holiday which I hope you will enjoy. I just can't believe this year is half over! Yikes! Please scroll down to view and may you and your family have a happy and safe Fourth of July bursting with fun activities that of course, include decorating that beautiful home of yours! :)
The making of this country was literally based on blood, sweat and tears. Even though this sounds harsh, these words remind us of what sacrifices were made for our freedom we value so highly and should never take for granted. This is the time of year we openly celebrate the progress that has been realized by almost clear cutting a seemingly impossible path created for us long ago as we still fight for justice and freedom for all. May your celebrations be merry and your hearts filled with joy and pride for this land we love!
Thomas Jefferson was assigned to draft the Declaration of Independence which was adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4th of 1776. Benjamin Franklin can be seen sitting off to the left as these men are hard at work declaring a new nation for the thirteen colonies to become independent from Great Britain.
This next line drawing shows Independence Hall where congress adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Gee, how exciting it must have been to be a part of all this back then! A new country was being born!
President Abraham Lincoln gave an astounding speech at the close of the Gettysburg address delivered on November 19, 1863, ~"We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth".~
Abraham Lincoln was born in Hardin County, Kentucky on February 12, 1809. He lived in this Log Cabin until the age of 9.
This picture shows a replication of what the inside of Lincoln's home may have looked like. The yarn winder seems to take center stage right in front of the open hearth fireplace while the churn off to the left awaits yet another work out.
Women created quilts out of necessity but also received inspiration from their daily life and the events that took place in the world at that time. Lincoln was a popular president, in the North that is, therefore woman designed quilts during the civil war era that depicted a log cabin as Lincoln's birthplace.
