FlyntDigital Closed July 4 Independence Day
by: Company Press Release
It is believed the words to "Yankee Doodle went to town... " were written in 1755 by a British doctor during the French and Indian War to ridicule, in the minds of the British, the ragtag, haggard and uncultured American colonial forces taking part in the conflict. This derogatory song was later used by British troops to show contempt for the fledgling United States Continental Army and less organized militias during the 7-year Revolutionary War. As the tide turned and colonial victories mounted, American troops proudly sang this song as a rallying cry against the mistakenly over-confident British.
In celebration of Independence Day, our offices will be closed on Monday, July 4, but as always, we will be e-mail accessible and available for any serious issues that may arise. Administrative concerns will be addressed on Tuesday, July 5 upon the return of our haggard, ragtag and yes, uncultured staff.
Have a great holiday!
