Happy Fourth of July from The Highground!
We hope you all enjoy a safe and memorable holiday weekend. If you are planning a visit to the Park, the Plaza will be lined with our Nation’s Stars and Stripes, patriotic music will be played over the speakers, and the Gift Shop will be open from 10-4. As always, the Park is open 24/7.
As we gather with family and friends and make plans to watch fireworks this evening, it’s easy to take our liberty for granted. We hope you will “join” us at some point as we take a moment to reflect on why we celebrate this important day.
Thank you: To our Veterans and Military Personnel serving today or who have previously served our great Nation.
Dedication: To our Wounded Warriors, as well as those who bravely gave their lives, so that we may have our freedom on this Independence Day.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
– Thomas Jefferson
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”
– Ronald Reagan
