ABC Wednesday - Y is for Yankee

Y is for Yankee..........

I think I have used this word before for "Y", but it is just perfect for today.

Today is Independence Day in the US - a celebration of our country's birthday.

It was in 1776 that the we won our freedom from England.

 We were known as the "Yankees" and we defeated the "British" during the Revolutionary War.

Fireworks, cookouts, and parades are celebrated in many towns, large and small, across the United States.

Happy July 4th to my readers - keep safe as you enjoy this holiday!


This is the tenth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
