Happy Independence Day!
Q: Do they have a Fourth of July in England? (see answer after the photo…)
A: Yes, it comes right after the Third of July. The English do not, however, typically celebrate Independence Day.
More Independence Day factoids:
• Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence in a tavern.
• The first signer of that famous document, John Hancock, was an alcohol dealer.
• Every signer of the Declaration of Independence drank alcoholic beverages. There was no abstainer among these American leaders.
• George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Paul Revere and Patrick Henry. One was a major whiskey distiller, one was a bar tender, one owned a vineyard, and one was a brewer. Alcohol beverages have always been an important part of American life and culture.
