Happy Independence Day from Washington, one stop on a Texas congressman’s tour of national landmarks to celebrate our heritage at a time it’s being besmirched. Rob Bluey has the story. A founding document meant slavery’s days were numbered, Thomas Krannawitter writes. Plus: the nation contends with the mob’s idea of justice; a federal judge says governments must treat churches fairly; fine-tuning our response to COVID-19; and Frederick Douglass and the Fourth. On this date in 1776, the Continental Congress, meeting in Philadelphia, adopts the Declaration of Independence, proclaiming the United States of America is no longer subject to Great Britain and its king.
