The public is welcome and encouraged to join organizers for the reading of the Declaration of Independence. They are encouraged to remembering U.S. history as founder and President John Adams envisioned in his quote below:

"I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty; it ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
