1. The Revolutionary War
    Holy shit we totally rebelled against a powerful empire!! I'm currently reading Sarah Vowell's latest "Lafayette and the Somewhat United States." So good (and funny) and takes you on the epic journey that was the Revolutionary War.
  2. Musicals
    I mean we practically perfected the art form. I can't even put into words how musicals make me feel, but they represent such hard work and dedication for the people who create them.
  3. So you can imagine how I feel when I see musicals like "Hamilton" and "1776"
    I get this blinding patriotism that I never feel any other time. Maybe on the 4th of July too.
