    Default Independence Day

    I was going to wish all a " Happy 4th of July"

    But not sure if I would offend any members, so for those who do celebrate it and are going to enjoy the day, " Happy 4th to all"

    And those who are not, well I do wish you all a very nice day and hope all can enjoy it safely...

    Between the mid 1800s and early 1900s, thousands of Danes immigrated to America, a place rich with opportunity and cheap land. Certain immigrants who filed an intent to become an American citizen could get a 160-acre plot of landfrom the government for just $14 under the Homestead Act of 1862, which made relocation an easy sell. Even Max Henius, the son of a Danish schnapps magnate and founder of Rebildfest, immigrated to America in the late 1800s. Later, using money raised by Danes in America, he bought a 140-acre plot of land in the picturesque hills of Rebild and gave it to the Danish government with stipulations that it be open for Danish-born Americans and their families to celebrate American holidays.
