Always fun to pull out for this celebration.
My country tis of Thee-
sweet land of liberty-
of Thee I sing.
God help us to be true to the red,
white and blue,
Her principles never to surrender.
This card was sent in 1917
as Ruth wrote to her friend
in Waynesboro, VA
telling her that soon
she would go leave to head to the city-
Makes me wonder what will be
the Big City in 100 years from now.
This postcard was sent in 1910.
Young Fredia Johnson
wrote a note to her friend-
Elizabeth Seigel in Oak Hill, Illinois.
Wishing you a
glorious 4th of July.
No date on this "playlet"-
"When Betsy Ross Made Old Glory."
Belonged to Phyllis Werling.
Can just imagine the school children
dressed up to play the parts of this "play."
Fourth of July postcards
are a bit challenging to find.
There just aren't too many to be found.
Guess I don't send 4th of July cards-
maybe not too many people
did either 100 years ago.
And that is why there
aren't too many to find!
