Freedom in America
Two of my ancestors paid the ultimate sacrifice so that I could live freely in America. They were John Frogge, at the Battle of Point Pleasant on October 10, 1774, and Jacob Speck at the Battle of Camden, South Carolina on August 16, 1780. This Independence Day, let us honor the many others who also died so that we might have freedom.
