On the 4th July Americans will come together to mark Independence Day – the birth of their nation and the biggest holiday across the pond.
The day – a federal holiday – marks when the US won independence from the British Empire after the Revolutionary War.
The 4th July celebration commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776.
It’s historically important for Americans, but it has also become a huge holiday celebration with parties and events across the country in every state.
The day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues and picnics, family reunions and baseball games. It’s an excuse – or reason – to go all out and celebrate what makes the United States, well. the United States.
