Happy 4th July

Happy 4th of July, here in the United States it is a day of celebration and festivities. Where you are located July 4th may be just another day, but it was on July 4th 1776 that the Declaration of Independence was authorized. What was the Declaration of Independence??

The Declaration of Independence was created by members of the Continental Congress. It stated that the thirteen American colonies as a union wanted to be known as a new nation. The nation would be known as the United States of America. By coming together and forming a new nation they no longer wanted to be ruled under the British Empire. While July 4th is the day the Declaration of Independence was authorized members of the Continental Congress had actually voted in favor of it on July 2nd.

The importance of the 13 colonies gathering their independence is not only historical but also a reason to celebrate. Today the day may be celebrated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, and reunions. Many times political speeches and ceremonies will take place as well to celebrate the historical date related to government and the creation of the United States.
