Title

Soldier Shoots Musket to Celebrate Independence

Description

This card is very colorful and busy. In the lower right corner there is an old-fashioned soldier, dressed in a tri-corner hat with a blue and gold coat. He is shooting a musket to create the words "July 4" on a piece of metal, which is already labeled "1776" in gold. Above it is an eagle and red, white and blue ribbon, and below it is a flag penant and cannon. There are fireworks exploding in the background.
