Happy Fourth of July!

“America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination, and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” – Harry S. Truman

We here at the DeKalb History Center hope that you are enjoying your Fourth of July. As we celebrate our nations birthday, it reminds us, as historians, of how individuals have built and shaped America, how the past continues to affect the present. We hope that you enjoy a small sample of photographs, selected from our archive, which honours everyday citizens and our military members. Happy Independence Day!
