The Fourth of July and the Declaration of Independence

There were many events that preceded the Declaration of Independence in 1776. What was it that forced them to commit to this act of rebellion? Five months after the Declaration, the American cause was very near collapse. What was Washington’s gamble that saved the war effort for the patriots? Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? There will be music of Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky and Copland.

Coffee and conversation will take place after the service, with refreshments provided by Mary Nice.

The service will be held at The Historic Campbell Home, 190 W. Winter St., Delaware, OH on the northeast corner of Elizabeth Street and West Winter Street. There is parking behind the building with handicap accessibility, as well as on the street.
