Independence Day covers by the numbers

July 2, 2014  |  We have published 92 July covers since 1922, and at least twenty-three of them contain allusions to Independence Day.

Some figures:

22:  Number of eagles

9:  Flags

7:  Military men

6:  Indenpendence Day-themed covers in the 1960s, the most of any decade. The 1940s had 5.

3:  Drums

1:  Invitation to buy war bonds
