    July 5th, 2006

    Yesterday was the Fourth of July, and I took the family up to D.C. for a memorable day. Please feel free to read and comment upon my essay…

    Oath of July

    July 5th, 2006

    Every year, new American citizens take the Oath of Citizenship on the steps of Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home just outside of Charlottesville. Four years ago, I attended and wrote on essay for this site which I re-present here as part of my de-archiving project.

    Sean Tubbs of the CVille Podcast Network visited and recorded the event yesterday. Below is an excerpt and link to his report:

    There are sixty-nine more Americans in the area around Charlottesville this week. The new citizens took the Oath of Citizenship on the steps of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello on Independence Day. They were welcomed by fellow naturalized citizens Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the pair responsible for huge public art projects such as The Gates and the wrapping of the Reichstag. This is a six minute report featuring the highlights from the ceremony. Check here for the full ceremony.
