Many of us Alabamians are enjoying a long Independence Day holiday. For State employees and others who are off work Monday, it is a four-day weekend.
My family, like many of yours, will enjoy barbecue, the lake (or beach), fireworks, and the gathering of family and friends.
241 years ago at the first Independence Day (though it was not called that), it was a different scene altogether.
