Jun 11, 2014 - Liberty Bell, We the People and Pride

In colonial time they wove red tapes, or ribbons to tie together legislative documents, so a pile of documents on the desk of the congressional secretary would be tied up in red tape. Week two in southeastern Pennsylvania was busy with a trip to valley forge, two days in Philly, a visit back in Lancaster, an afternoon at the railroad attractions in Strasberg, and shopping at B&B and shady...
