Three cheers for the red, white and blue! In July 1776, during the second year of the American Revolutionary War, representatives from 13 North American colonies of the kingdom of Great Britain voted to declare themselves independent from the crown, forming the United States of America. Two days after the historic vote, on July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed. To this day we celebrate Independence Day with parades, fireworks, a day off from work, cookouts, flag-waving and pride. This 1,000 piece puzzle is the work of English artist Kevin Walsh and has a finished size of 24" x 30".
