On the fourth day of July, all across the United States, fireworks are lit off to commemorate the victory of our fore fathers over Britain and birth of America. But that freedom came at a price and that price was paid for by the soldiers who then and now continue to fight for our way of life. So we thought what better month to display the stories of the men and women who held the trenches when the World was fighting itself, or braved to musket fire that threatened to tear America in two. Men and women who stood in the hot desert sand of the Middle East or who braved the jungles of Asia all in the name of the United States of America. So come into the Library this month and check out some of these tales of war and the warriors that have to live through them.
