The Ancient Town In Delaware That’s Loaded With Fascinating History

As America’s First State, Delaware kind of gets overlooked when people talk about the American Revolution. Sure, Philadelphia played a big part, and we can’t forget the sacrifices made by Boston patriots, but Caesar Rodney and Dover are rarely mentioned in American History classes around the nation. When it comes to celebrating our Independence this week, or any time of year, it’s important to realize that one of the country’s most historic cities is right in our backyard.
