Independence Day 2013

My best wishes for a safe, meaningful and enjoyable 4th of July celebration.

Here's a reminder of the foundation of this proud national observance: America's Declaration of Independence.

Visit the state's 4th of July online exhibit tracing the central role played by New York during the Revolutionary War.

Some safety reminders, and "History of the Flag of the United States of America"

And for a few updates on local July 4th activities and attractions, see:
