The 4th of July (Independence Day) is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States on July 4, 1776.
The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject to the monarch of Britain and were now united, free, and independent states. The Congress had voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2, but it was not declared until July 4.
Independence Day is happily commemorated with parades, fireworks, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies.
In addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.
Let us all also remember the brave soldiers who laid down their lives to protect the United States from our enemies and preserve our freedoms.
Happy 4th of July, America!
