I was walking through the shops the other day and noticed the amount of 4th of July merchandise already lined up. Wow.
So I started thinking, if people are beginning to think and perhaps get ready, already, for Independence Day perhaps we would join in.
Although Hattingdon has traditional flag inspired hats, the design that kept coming to mind is this one, Liberty Hattingdon.
More a headdress than a hat, it looks a bit like those souvenirs you find around New York doesn’t it?
Well, whatever it is or want to call it, it is darn cute and she has never looked more adorable.
How about some history on the lady who wears the original?
ABOUT THE STATUE OF LIBERTY
- “The Statue of Liberty was a joint effort between France and the United States, intended to commemorate the lasting friendship between the peoples of the two nations. The French sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi created the statue itself out of sheets of hammered copper, while Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel, the man behind the famed Eiffel Tower, designed the statue’s steel framework.
“The Statue of Liberty was then given to the United States and erected atop an American-designed pedestal on a small island in Upper New York Bay, now known as Liberty Island, and dedicated by President Grover Cleveland in 1886.
“Over the years, the statue stood tall as millions of immigrants arrived in America via nearby Ellis Island; in 1986, it underwent an extensive renovation in honor of the centennial of its dedication. Today, the Statue of Liberty remains an enduring symbol of freedom and democracy, as well as one of the world’s most recognizable landmarks.”
