When we think of holidays like the 4th of July, we think of fireworks and parades, but it wasn't so long ago that Americans who were celebrating that day made certain the reasons for the day we were also remembered. Rob Wilds went to a place where the old time fourth lives on.
The July 4th Celebration is held July 4th from 1PM-4PM. Directions: The Homeplace is located in the Tennessee portion of LBL. From the Golden Pond Visitor Center travel south on The Trace about 12 miles.
