The Fourth of July -- fireworks, parades, and President George W. Bush.
Four times, President Bush spent his Independence Day in West Virginia.
"I appreciate the good people of this state. You work hard. You look after your neighbors and you love your country," Bush said.
The President started in 2002 -- his first July 4th since the attack of September 11th -- with a visit to Ripley.
He had a state capitol speech in 2004 and spent time in Morgantown and Martinsburg in later years.
The state helped elect him twice -- and President Bush rewarded his supporters with frequent visits.
