"Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."

The first week of July 1776, was a busy and exciting one for our nation's Founding Fathers. July 1st started the debate and revisions of a document that would change the course of history.

Adopted on July 4th, 1776, the Declaration of Independence would signal a start of a new country that would offer its citizens a new way of life. One where "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights."

Some 118 years later, buoyed by these sacred "unalienable rights" the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill Founding Fathers, Franz Ranke and George Grueber, established the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill.

Men by the names of Adams, Franklin ,Hamilton, Jay, Jefferson, Madison and Washington wrote the words that allowed men like Ranke and Grueber the freedom to "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
