Celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the creation of a new nation with this 4th July ecard re-enacting perhaps the most important historical event in US history. We begin by looking at this important document, dated July 4, 1776, stating ‘The Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America. A military march rendition of Yankee Doodle plays as we move down the page to see many signatures; the most prominent is John Hancock’s famously large scrawl. A hand takes a quill and adds a signature, that of Benjamin Franklin, before it is placed in a wooden box. Out of this, symbols of American Independence arise such as the bald eagle from the seal of the US, the Liberty Bell and of course, the Stars and Stripes. The bell rings out before the message ‘Have a Great Independence Day,’ appears. This animated e card greeting cannot be viewed using iPads and iPhones.
