Delaware celebrates being Delaware: Separate from the rest

In June 1776 Delaware sent notice that it no longer considered itself a part of Pennsylvania.  Each year on the second Saturday in June Delawareans and tourists gather in Old New Castle to celebrate with a parade.  On June 11th we celebrated the 235th anniversary of that date with history.
