On This Date….

On this date in American history:

1775 Congress issues “Declaration of the Causes & Necessity of Taking up Arms,” listing grievances but denying intent to be independent.

But just one year later….
1776 – American Declaration of Independence announced on front page of “PA Evening Gazette”

And then a low point in the fight for Independence:
1777 – British Gen Burgoyne captures Fort Ticonderoga from Americans
