HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!

Today, July 4th, 2015, is celebrated as Independence Day!

Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation's most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring monument.

Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people.

The political philosophy of the Declaration was not new; its ideals of individual liberty had already been expressed by John Locke and the Continental philosophers. What Jefferson did was to summarize this philosophy in "self-evident truths" and set forth a list of grievances against the King in order to justify before the world the breaking of ties between the colonies and the mother country.

Majorie Booth Bonnet

MARJORIE BOOTH BONNET was Principal at Highland Springs School from 1924 to 1944.

She oversaw the largest High School in the County at a time when men were expected to hold the position. Her students felt such regard for her that they called her "Mommie" Bonnet.
