      Presidential Death Beds & Independence Day

      Here’s a little history trivia about this special day

      John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, Founding Fathers and the second and third Presidents of the United States, both died on July 4, 1826, on the 50th anniversary of Independence Day.

      Leaving you with that conversation starter, we hope you celebrate this day with friends and family and feast like the Romans!
