The Day we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence
July 4th – Independence Day, is not generally thought of, as a gift-giving day, but there are special people we wish to show our appreciation to. There are speakers at gatherings, Grand marshals in parades, Organizers of Events. What better thank-you than a gift directly related to a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Perhaps a mayor or local councilmen who you think should be reminded from time to time of the Constitution by having something in hand that comes from a signer of that document. So enjoy the picnics and parades and (if you can) the speeches, and if you want to impress someone try something from a Founding Father that made it all possible.

Philadelphia’s historic Christ Church Burial Ground - the final resting place of five signers of the Declaration of Independence: Dr. Benjamin Rush, Benjamin Franklin, George Ross, Joseph Hewes, and Francis Hopkinson. Also buried on these historic and sacred grounds are many of our nations early founders and leaders, prominent lawyers, medical pioneers, military heroes, victims of the Yellow Fever epidemic, and members of the Church from the colonial era up into the last decade.
