We’ve also found an infographic (titled: 44 Reasons America Is Free) for honoring the leaders who laid more than a few bricks in the building a great country – known as United States Of America.
Note from FreedomCelebration for this infographic: “Astute readers will note there haven’t been 44 presidents, but 43. Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms in office, the only president to do so. Our title, “44 Reasons America Is Free,” refers not to the men themselves, but to the people and the Constitution that put them in office.”
