Remember July 4, 1776

Happy Independence Day, America!

Getting to July 4th in 1776 was quite an ordeal. As usual there were political compromises to be made and not everyone was totally happy. But on that date 233 years ago the Declaration of Independence was signed.

Tune in July 4th at 10:15pm Eastern time to Turner Classic Movies (TCM) to watch the movie 1776. It's a pretty good re-telling. Some of the music is nice, and some is silly, but it's well worth the watch.

Or buy the movie in the Director's Cut version from Amazon:

I love that version of the movie. I watch it every 4th of July.

Happy Independence Day!
