Around July 4th, 1976. We had a Bicentennial Day celebration at our school. Everyone dressed up like a character from the times and we went as coal miners (can’t you tell?).
.
I grew my beard out for the occasion.

  • Artifact of the Week: 1976 painted Fire Hydrant  1976 was the bicentennial of the forming of the United States of America. To commemorate this feat, which evoked a sense of pride and nationalism in communities across the country, communities like Downers Grove painted their fire hydrants to look like various important figures from the Revolutionary War. This figure is of George Washington, a general during the war and later first official president of the United States. #bicentennial #patriotism #happyindependenceday #georgewashington #arrifactoftheweek #downersgrovemuseum #downersgroveil #1776

  • Maine Vacation Day #5. What can I say? A very special #birthday in a very special #bicentennial state. You are what you eat, so I guess I am Scottish lachs, hash browns, doppelboch weizen beer, fresh, steamed lobster 🦞from @mcloonslobster shack in S Thomaston, asparagus and  sweet🌽. And, perhaps the best part—especially for a #chocoholic on a big day, a wicked whoopie pie. Weather forecast for Day 6 should allow some kayak time to work it all off 😉

  • If you're looking for something fun to do today and beat the heat at the same time, then visit the Eiteljorg Museum. We're open until 5 p.m. and you can see our fascinating special exhibition, Quilts: Uncovering Women's Stories. Click on the video link below to watch a quick clip of our curator of Western art, history and culture, Johanna M. Blume, talking about a bicentennial quilt made back in 1976. Bicentennial quilts were really big back in that time and a iconic way of expressing patriotism. ⠀

  • Headed to the eBay store: a #bicentennial year edition of #Candyland #Bingo from #MiltonBradley. To be sold off as parts lot, as it is missing two gingerbread men and, more crucially, the spinner. Still, for a game that’s almost 45 years old, it’s in very solid shape. Box has only one slightly crushed corner. #Eckerd price tag in the upper corner, with a surprising $6.49 price point. Found at @goodwillhouston.

  • Four score and 1776 stitches ago...

Bicentennial patches are almost a dime a dozen in the patch world. And this 1776 patch is no exception. US Bicentennial celebrations culminated on Sunday, July 4th 1976. Festivities included elaborate fireworks across major American cities, tall ships toured the East Coast and Johnny Cash was the Grand Marshall of the U.S. Bicentennial parade.

  • It was 1976 I was only 7, things were simpler. We had know idea how much of powder keg America really was. It was our Bicentennial. Even Japan was up on it, I think they knew. Did you or your parents goto the Hechinger sale? In 56 years from now most of us won't be here how will this story read in 2076? 300 years is around the corner. We can change the future and make sure the headlines go correctly. It's time to unite and be one. It's time to make positive change. I hope you all had a great fourth. Now it's time to fix ourselves.

  • Celebrating America’s 244th Birthday... for some reason this comic book from 1976 that I read as a kid popped into my head. It was published during the Bicentennial celebrations. Even though, I was born and raised in England, I was always drawn to American popular culture and for me, the Bicentennial remains a prominent memory. I would visit the US for the first time during the following year. #fourthofjuly #bicentennial #4thofjuly #captainamerica #jackkirby #marvelcomics

  • Next stop, Alaska! (2/50)

Did you know the Alaska Railroad had Bicentennial units? Here we catch 1510 and 1512 rolling through Matanuska on a MOW train in August of 1985.
