The world’s largest celebration of life is set to take place this weekend in Alabama as the Transplant Games gear up to showcase the success of organ donation and transplantation while underscoring the need for more donors. Joining the Philadelphia team is a competitor from Delaware who underwent a liver transplant at just 10 months old in 2005 and is now preparing for her seventh appearance at the games – an inspiring testament to the impact of organ donation.

In a historic discovery, a musket used during the American Revolutionary War has resurfaced and is now on display at a museum in Old City. Believed to have been stolen in 1968 along with other valuable artifacts from the Valley Forge Historical Society, this rediscovered piece of history has experts buzzing and may finally shed light on a decades-old mystery surrounding its disappearance.

On a different note, the USS New Jersey, the most decorated battleship in U.S. Navy history, has returned home after undergoing repairs for the past three months. Departing from the Paulsboro Marine Terminal, the ship was welcomed by a crowd at the Camden Pier and is set to reopen to the public just in time for Independence Day, marking a pivotal moment in the vessel’s storied legacy.
