George Washington. Benjamin Franklin. Thomas Jefferson.
When the Fourth of July rolls around, their names are quickly let loose from Americans' tongues as the men who made it happen. They are remembered as the creators of the United States of America.
But what of the gentleman from Delaware?
What about the midnight rider who trekked eighty miles by horse in a thunderstorm to show up at the doorstep of Independence Hall in boots and spurs to cast the tie-breaking vote for Independence?
Where I come from, that is way cooler than inventing the bifocals or chopping down cherry trees.
So come on, people. It's Independence Day.
Throw a fist-pump high in the air for the closest thing to "Shaft" Delaware ever had.
SHUT YOUR MOUTH!
But I'm just talkin' 'bout C.R..
THEN WE CAN DIG IT!
