Two Ocean Pines Women Celebrate July Fourth Remembering Their Patriots

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN PINES, Md.- Two members of the group known as Daughters of the American Revolution celebrated July 4th in a unique way. 

Effie Cox and Theresa Naushuetz flipped through memorabilia dated back hundreds of years. Letters, pictures and books all commemorating their ancestors and their patriots.

"Well it means so much to me in particular not only because of my ancestors and the strength that they showed in standing up against a much stronger power but also the freedom that it represents for our country," said Nausheutz.

"When you research it and you look at your patriots and you see what the sacrificed for an idea for something that didn't even exist at that time to me its like they were making a promise to us to future generations they were making a stand and they were going to make something better for us," said Cox.

Both women said while its fun to celebrate on the fourth, its also important to remember why we celebrate.

"It is a great celebration to me its because of their determination and the people they were so to me it's celebrating the people," Cox said.
