Celebrating Independence: Happy 4th of July 2024

As we gather under the summer skies this 4th of July, the Michigan Society of the Sons of the American Revolution extends warmest greetings and heartfelt wishes for a joyous Independence Day to all our members, families, and friends. Today marks not just the birth of our nation, but also the enduring spirit of liberty that defines the United States of America.

This year, as we celebrate 248 years since our forefathers bravely declared independence from British rule, we are reminded of the courage, vision, and unwavering determination that fueled our nation’s founding. The Declaration of Independence, signed on July 4, 1776, was more than just a statement of intent; it was a bold proclamation of our collective values—values that continue to inspire and guide us.

As descendants of the brave men and women who fought for our freedom, we hold a unique appreciation for the significance of this day. It is a time to reflect on the sacrifices made by the Patriots of the American Revolutionary War—sacrifices that granted us liberty and laid the foundation for our country. The Michigan Society of the Sons of the American Revolution is committed to preserving these stories and honoring the legacy of those who fought so valiantly for our independence.

We invite all members and supporters to join in the local 4th of July parades, ceremonies, and celebrations. Let’s proudly display our flags, wear our revolutionary attire, and share the stories of our ancestors with the community. These acts of remembrance and celebration reinforce the bonds of our shared heritage and encourage a deeper understanding of American history among all generations.

As we watch the fireworks light up the night sky, let them be a symbol of hope and unity. Despite the challenges we may face as a nation, our shared commitment to upholding the ideals of our founding can unite us. Today, let us celebrate not only our independence but also our enduring commitment to coming together as one nation, under God, indivisible.

From all of us at the Michigan Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, we wish you a safe, joyful, and memorable 4th of July. May this day bring you closer to your loved ones and deepen your connection to our great nation’s history. Happy Independence Day 2024!
