I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Liveblogging The Continental Congress

Last year, Rick Moran “liveblogged” the Battle of Gettysburg. This year, he turns his attention to the Continental Congress of 1776:

[O]ver the last months, several of you have urged me to “liveblog” an historical event using a similar premise – that the internet existed at the time and that I could then link to and comment on the event from the perspective that we were all living it rather than viewing it from afar.

You asked for it. You got it. Let’s go to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 2, 1776 – the day that American Independence was literally willed into existence by the people of the United States through their representatives in the Continental Congress.

Right now, you can read his posts for July 2, 1776 , July 3, 1776, and July 4, 1776
