Happy Independence Day! What Obama Would've Celebrated 236 Years Ago

Je me souviens.


Disclaimer:

If you look closely the photo reads "1807", so technically I'm 31 years off.  I used this photo for the dramatic effect of representing slavery, and not historical accuracy.  Most people know US slavery for picking cotton, but that didn't come about on a wide scale until after Eli Whitney invented the Cotton Gin on the cusp of the Antebellum period (boycott Lady Antebellum.  That's like calling your group "The Holocausts").

  1. Does Lady Antebellum know the significance of that name?

    1. That's a very good question. They probably do.
