“Independence Day of the United States”, also referred to as “The Fourth of July”, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer part of the British Empire. The 4th of July holiday is commonly celebrated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, and family reunions. It is a time to celebrate, and also a time to remember and thank the brave and courageous settlers who first started this nation, as well as Thomas Jefferson who wrote our Declaration of Independence and all of our heroic founding fathers who signed it in defiance of England.
