Old-Fashioned 4th of July Celebration

My wife Traci and I and our little boy went to an old-fashioned 4th of July celebration today and we had a great time. It was at a Park outside of Denver called 4 Mile Historic Park. The celebration was set in the time of the Civil War and had everything from soldiers from that era to Abe Lincoln. They had re-enactments of the battles but the best part (for me) was when an orchestra played The Battle Hymn of the Republic while "Abe Lincoln" read the Gettysburg Address. All-in-all we had a great time there this afternoon and look forward to the fireworks display tonight to celebrate our country's Independence.
