"It was on this day in 1789, that Congress approved an Act for the establishment and support of lighthouse, beacons, buoys and public piers. In Celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the signing of the Act and the commissioning of the first Federal lighthouse, Congress passed a resolution which designated August 7, 1989 as National Lighthouse Day."

Wasn't this one of the actions that really launched the US as a "nation" rather than just a bunch of "states"?  I've seen this Act as one of the seminal actions of a new nation.

Here's a fun one from Cape Cod looking down:
