This week, everyone is celebrating our nation’s independence, with picnics, parades, and fireworks. It is also a perfect time to celebrate the town that we live in within our great country.
Montgomery has a direct connection to the very beginning of America. One of President George Washington’s bodyguards, Michael Sechler, lived in town, and is buried at the Clinton Baptist Cemetery. Though ours is a small community, it played a large part in the fight for freedom of the United States of America. So, Happy Independence Day, to the United States of America, and to its smaller counterparts, like Montgomery, that make it such a wonderful place to live.
