    The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in
    the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be
    celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary
    festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance,
    by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be
    solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns,
    bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of the continent
    to the other, from this time forward forevermore.

You sunburnt sicklemen, of August weary,
Come hither from the furrow and be merry.
Make holiday: your rye-straw hats put on,
And these fresh nymphs encounter every one
In country footing.

And nothing pleaseth but rare accidents.

And that was the way
The deuce was to pay
As it always is, at the close of the day
That gave us--
Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
(With some restrictions, the fault-finders say)
That which, please God, we will keep for aye
Our National Independence!
