Today marks the beginning of the 36th Annual Liberty Day Celebration in the beautiful and historic town of Columbiana, Alabama. Over the course of today and into tomorrow, Columbiana will welcome thousands of visitors from all over the state. At a time when our country seems to be divided over many things, we will come together as Americans to celebrate our liberty.
I am sharing with you a video created by Lois Cooper, the late wife of Shelby County Museum & Archives Research Coordinator Bruce Cooper. When I first watched this video, I was filled with incredible pride in my country, and I hope you will feel the same way.
We encourage you to share this video, but we ask that you credit Lois Cooper because it is through her creativity and love of country that this video exists.
Thank you, and God Bless America!
