Who Was There?
According to Moonalice legend, July 4 is a day with magical powers. For one thing, it is the approximate date of aphelion, when the earth is at the furthest point in its orbit around the sun. When the sun is far away, interesting things happen, both in the tribe and out. In 18th century America - before the Revolutionary War - Moonalice tribe members lobbied aggressively for the freedom to grow hemp and play bass. Progress on the initiative was very slow until the tribe found a way to align itself with white colonists. They did so over the issue of taxation without representation. The tribe had no idea what taxation without representation meant, but it seems like a huge threat to the tribal hemp crop, so Moonalice joined the rebellion in the 1770s. Then, from July 1 to July 4, 1776, the tribe catered the meeting of the Second Continental Congress. They served traditional pub food with a variety of tasty deserts made from derivatives of the tribe's own hemp crop. From all reports, the Second Continental Congress was a huge success. The best evidence was that somehow they lost the original Declaration of Independence. Legend has it that the document was written on hemp paper and that prodigious amounts of hemp were consumed that night. All we know is that the darn Declaration disappeared that night, never to be seen again. Fortunately, the tribe had kept a copy, so that Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock and the rest of the gang could issue a Declaration that would change the world. That part part is history. The rest, as they say, is legend.
