Why Don't July Around and Solve This?

· By JeffsPuzzles · Published about 2 months ago

Constructor's Note: I'm posting this early because I'm leaving tomorrow for five days hiking in Wales followed by three days exploring the Isle of Man. See you in a couple of weeks! In the mean time, solve the puzzle and find out why July 4 was important to some of our founding fathers - just not in the way you think.
