Just returned via a 5 hour drive from the Eric Sloane Museum. A wonderful day and a fitting celebration of our nation’s independence. Our thanks to many people, including Kent’s First Selectman and our fellow board member, Bruce Adams, who read the Declaration of Independence during our events today. A big thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed the day with us.

Eric Sloane and the Sound of Bells

“Mr. Sloane’s enthusiasm for bells originated while he was doing research on one of his other books.  He found that, before the Civil War, Independence Day was celebrated by the ringing of bells rather than by the use of fireworks….This connection between the sound of bells and the sound of freedom led him to a thorough study of the place of bells in the history of America.”  From the dust jacket of The Sound of Bells by Eric Sloane, 1966 Doubleday.

Here are a few photos from a July 4th 2013(!) celebration at the Eric Sloane Museum.
