#TBT: Celebrating America’s Independence

Centennial Record cover, 1876, about July 4th


In honor of the Fourth of July, we’d like to highlight a recent exciting addition to Falvey’s Digital Library: The Centennial Record of Portland, Maine.

On the cover of volume one, issue three from March of 1876, there’s a depiction of the signing of the Declaration of Independence from 100 years prior–July of 1776. Below, you’ll also notice pictures of the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and Faneuil Hall as well as the list of the 13 colonies that adopted the Declaration of Independence.

Feeling festive? Be sure to check out some of the other volumes of The Centennial Record in our Digital Library for a closer look into America’s past.

On behalf Falvey Memorial Library, please have a safe and happy Fourth of July holiday!
