About the header image: July 3, 2013

The NEPA Blogs header for July 3 through July 9 is a patriotic image of a parade in Montrose. The image was submitted by Leni Konstas of Leni also designed the header itself!

This week not only includes the July 4th holiday, but also marks the 235th anniversary of the Battle of Wyoming, which took place July 3, 1778, in which a ragtag collection of old men, young boys, and others fought against a superior force of Tories and their Iroquois allies in what is now Exeter. They fought to defend the settlements of the Wyoming Valley, which provided critical supplies for the Continental Army and was at the time the northwestern frontier of the colonies. The Wyoming Monument stands in tribute to their sacrifice.

Enjoy your holiday, and remember what it stands for!
