This post is for the bloggers out there. I’ve sent an email to nearly 50 bloggers and asked them to participate. If I missed you, I would still welcome you to join in the fun. Here is the message I sent:
When I was growing up one of my favorite series of books were “We Were There…” (One that sticks in my mind was, “We were there at Pearl Harbor: Historical consultant: Willard A. Kitts, 3rd (We were there books )“) Independence Day is without a doubt our most historical holiday. So, here’s my idea:
It’s July 1776, but there’s one difference — blogs, including yours. What would your post be for July 4th, 1776 not from today’s perspective, but if “you were there”? If you’d like to write a post in your blog’s style I’d like to publish them tomorrow. If you’d like to participate you can either send it as a reply to this email and I’ll add it, or if you want to post it on your blog you can send the link and I’ll reference it that way.
I hope you have fun with this. In any case I wish for you and yours a wonderful Independence Day +230

After looking around I found out the book series was We Were There. I have modified the post.
