Happy Fourth of July!
This month we celebrate the Independence of the United States with patriotic songs, prideful parades, barbequed feasts of hot dogs and corn on the cob, and majestic fireworks that illuminate the summer skies. And among all this celebration, we take the time to remember what it means to be an American, and how we, as a nation came to be – Our forefathers signing the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain on July 4, 1776.
Appropriately, the Datalogics Book Club theme this month is the history of Independence Day, focusing on our book of the month: Common Sense by Thomas Paine. Common Sense inspired, ignited and united the Thirteen Colonies to declare their independence from Great Britain. Paine wrote and reasoned in a style that common people understood and structured the pamphlet as if it were a sermon, relying on Biblical references to make his case to the people. Other historical books available in our book club contributing to our celebration of America’s Independence are The American Crisis also by Thomas Paine, Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson, The Federalist Papers by Publius and a piece of fiction – The Virginians by William Makepeace Thackeray.
