The Revolution and The Freedom: Two Globes for the Fourth of July
The Fourth of July is a time to be thankful and appreciate the sacrifices made for the freedoms that we enjoy today. The United States of America is a free and proud nation.  July 4, 2018 marks the 242nd anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. 

Two-hundred and forty-two years ago the Continental Congress made an official declaration of political autonomy from the constitutional monarchy of Great Britain. At this time of the year we traditionally enjoy picnics and potlucks, fireworks and all American-food. After enjoying cookouts with delicious hamburgers, hotdogs, watermelon and other seasonal treats, celebrate Independence with a new globe. 

The Freedom Globe is the perfect globe for any patriot, conveying a sense of wonder and national pride that only a sphere supported by an Eagle in flight could. The wings of the Bald Eagle are spread in flight and connected to a bronze-finished full-meridian.  The map features raised relief and detailed political descriptions.  The combined height of the stand and sphere are 20 inches, the globe is 13.5 inches wide and 12 inches in diameter.

Another beautiful globe for Independence Day, the Revolution inspires optimism and adventure. 
The antique oceans are reminiscent of yesteryear and the full meridian allows for easy navigation. The full meridian include descriptions of the various coordinates to make it easy to locate various landmarks. The beautiful walnut wooden tiered stand compliments the rustic beige color of the globe. The combined height of the stand and sphere are about 16 inches, the sphere is 16 inches wide and 12 inches in diameter.
