The First Fourth of July

EPISODE 13: James and Sarah witness the amazing process of the writing of the Declaration of Independence and meet Thomas Jefferson while competing to get the best story.


HISTORICAL CONTENT: As German troops, called Hessians arrive off the coast of Staten Island (7/4/76) to help the British, John Adams finally convinces Congress that independence is the only answer to the colonies' problems. They ask Thomas Jefferson to write the first draft of a "Declaration of Independence." Shortly after the Declaration is signed on July 4th, a massive British fleet enters New York harbor. Ben Franklin realizes that "we must hang together or we will surely hang separately."

EMOTIONAL TAKEAWAY: One of the most powerful steps in doing something is to write down just what you are going to do and then set out to make it happen.
