On July 4th, 2026 we will mark the 250th anniversary of the founding of this great Republic – America’s semi quincentennial. We are nation that has endured numerous trials, external wars, and a horrific Civil War. In spite of these challenges, as we approach 250 years , we remain a nation not without its flaws but rather a beacon of democracy that has inspired millions around the globe to seek independence from oppression and immigrants to travel to our shores seeking a better way of life.
I have several ancestors that both fought and died in the Revolutionary War – one was Captain Isaac Baldwin at Bunker Hill. What caused them to leave a comfortable existence and risk it all for the nascent experiment of Democracy founded by these immortal words:“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
When our Founding Fathers broke with the old-world, America truly was an experiment and history has shown that such experiments were tried on few occasions but previously failed. As George Washington stated, “The establishment of our new government seemed to be the last great experiment for promoting human happiness.”
