Atlanta Gladiators promote Independence Pack

The Atlanta Gladiators of the ECHL are promoting a special Independence Pack in recognition of Independence Day on July 4. From July 1 to July 7, fans can purchase four tickets for $17.76. 

The tickets are for the Gladiators games against the Greenville Swamp Rabbits on Oct. 19 and against the Orlando Solar Bears on Oct. 20. Both games start at 7:35 p.m. ET at the Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth. 

The games against the Swamp Rabbits and Solar Bears are the first two home games for the Gladiators on the 2018-19 ECHL regular season schedule. Last season, the Gladiators had 13 more points than the Swamp Rabbits, but six fewer points than the Solar Bears. 

The price of $17.76 recognizes the year of 1776 that the United States declared independence. The drafting of the declaration was accomplished by five notable Americans--John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston. Adams was the President of the United States from 1797-1801. Jefferson was the President of the United States from 1801 to 1809. Franklin invented bifocals and the lightning rod. Sherman is the only person to have signed the Continental Association, Declaration of Independence, Constitution and the Articles of Confederation. Livingston meanwhile was the first chancellor of New York.
