Let’s celebrate the birth of this great nation – Cross Timbers Gazette | Denton County South | mound of flowers


The 4e July weekend is just around the corner and Denton County communities will be celebrating the birth and independence of our great nation with a host of events.

Since 1941, this federal holiday has honored the birth of our nation when delegates from the 13 colonies unanimously adopted the Declaration of Independence two days after the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence.

The historic document authored by Thomas Jefferson still holds the vital key to how our country has stood the test of time. The preamble to our Declaration of Independence rings as loud and true today as it did 246 years ago:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights including Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

As you gather with friends and family this 4th of July weekend, we wish you all a safe and memorable time together.
