British empire crumbles in 1776
On July 2, 1776, General George Washington gave a speech that changed history. Two days later, a new nation was born.
The United States of America.
Watch as we light British banners on fire, symbolizing the chaos of 1776. This was the new 2015 addition to the epic summer show at Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Here are excerpts from the speech:
"Our own Country's Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion,… and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world.
The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny mediated against them.
Let us show the whole world, that a free man contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth."
