Let’s start our roundup at the National Archives where there is a host of free activities on July 4 for those in the WashDC area. Hey, you can sign a facsimile of the Declaration of Independence and share your #ISignedTheDeclaration on social media! There will be a dramatic reading of the Declaration of Independence, a presentation of colors and performance by the Continental Color Guard and the Fife and Drum Corps from the U.S. 3rd Infantry, the Old Guard. You can even take a ColonialSelfie w/ @Thos_Jefferson @portia1776 or @Lysander1776 on #July4th! Check it out here: http://go.usa.gov/3vTrT .
