Show us your patriotism!



How do you show your patriotism on the Fourth of July vs. the rest of the year, and why?

The Post is putting together a special section of patriotic songs, historic U.S. documents and other material for readers to enjoy as they celebrate Independence Day, and we’re asking for your help.


Tell us how you plan to show your patriotism on July 4 and why. What does patriotism mean to you?

Send your response to copy editor Chuck McShane at cmcshane@salisburypost.com or mail it to Chuck McShane, Salisbury Post, P.O. Box 4639, Salisbury, NC 28145.

If you have a photograph of yourself you would like to include, please send it, too.

The section will be in the Post on Sunday, June 30.
