What comes to mind when you think of Independence Day, or as it’s more popularly referred to today as July 4th?

My memories of the holiday go back to my childhood, watching the parade from our front porch, since the route at that time went past our home at the corner of Eighth and Main streets in Vincennes, and, of course, joining a large crowd at the Clark Memorial for the fireworks demonstration. It was always a time when the whole community joined together to celebrate.
