Independence Day Reads

Guest Article by:

There’s something uniquely American in the celebration of Independence Day, beginning with the day we choose to commemorate. Independence is not celebrated with the anniversary of victory at Yorktown or the signing of the Treaty of Paris. Rather, it is the day of the people’s Declaration of Independence, the day the founders decided we would no longer be a colony of Britain. That stubborn self-reliance has woven itself into the very tapestry of our nation. To celebrate the revolutionary nature of our founding and our freedom, here are some of our favorites.
