Battle of Gettysburg thank you note

Dear _______,  

First of all, I'd like to say thank you very much for the Fourth of July fireworks. It really means alot to me, because I know that it was very expensive, and I thank you again for doing this much for us.

It happens that we were watching a documentary about the civil war and the Battle of Gettysburg, and as you can imagine, there was gunfire during that movie, and while that was going on, we heard loud bangs in the distance. This seemed like it was correlated to the Battle of Gettysburg. (it certainly sounded like it). So me and my mother ran to where the bangs were coming from, and we found that it was fireworks. It gave us a feeling of joy and relief, especially after we felt like soldiers running through the battlefield in the Battle of Gettysburg. Again, thank you so much for your generosity and compassion! We truly appreciate it!

Sincerely,

Ben Krug
