Gaining its independence in 1776, the United States remains a beacon of hope and freedom for the world at large. Starting with its humble beginnings, the first American settlement was Jamestown, with a meager 38 of 104 pilgrims surviving the first winter; however, such large obstacles began to mold the foundation of a strong and successful America. From that point forward, the young nation multiplied and prospered into the original 13 colonies, and led a successful rebellion against Britain starting in 1775 and ending in 1783 with Congress approving the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776.
The United States has certainly expanded since its early days, now with 50 states and over 318 million inhabitants. From sea to shining sea, Maine to New Mexico, the diversity of each culture, religion, as well as tradition fuses together to create the great Melting Pot” that grants each proud citizen “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”.
This ornament is a great way to celebrate America’s rich history and it makes the perfect present for any proud American.
