The year was 1830. It was but 54 years since the birth of our nation. A citizen writes to a Maryland newspaper expressing thoughts about the upcoming Fourth Of July observance. The words seem to come to life as they express an enthusiastic and patriotic sentiment reflecting the true spirit of this holiday.
Please take a few moments to read these words from 182 years go.. this Sunday on The Pocomoke Public Eye!
