To get these photos, I was literally in the faces of the Williamsburg militia and the Fife & Drum Corps (poor guys). It was the 225th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, and the Declaration was read from the courthouse steps. As it was read, the crowd cheered. They also occasionally yelled out "Death to the Tyrant!" and "Down with King George!" and other similar sentiments. It was the most memorable 4th of July we have ever experienced, and this is still probably my favorite of the Independence Day layouts I've done.
