In Dover, a July 4th Tradition Brings the Past Alive

Over 200 people gathered around the steps of City Hall in Dover this morning for a special July 4th tradition: a reading of the Declaration of Independence by actors portraying John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson.

NHPR reporter Jason Moon was in the crowd. He asked attendees why they felt it was important to come.
