More than a day off for barbecues and fireworks, Independence Day will forever mark the beginning of an American era, the anniversary of our first birth of freedom.
On today’s Federalist Radio Hour, Ben breathes life into a historical anthology of the Fourth of July.
Drawing from the battle of Bunker Hill to the symposium at Independence Hall, he builds a vivid picture of the men who sacrificed and fought to make liberty more than an ideal.
Illuminating their struggle through personal letters and first hand accounts, Ben shows how the Fourth endures as a testament to our permanent heritage.
