Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

In Colonial Times, the Towncrier, went street to street ringing his bell and announcing the news! This gentleman Patriot read the Declaration of Independence to the visitors and residents of Rockport, Massachusetts, at 10:00 am on the 4th of July. I was touched! It's the first time I have ever heard it read aloud and it has very powerful words. The American Colonists were brave to make such a declaration! Of course the English King got mad and sent soldiers to change their minds, but the Americans prevailed.
