About Independence Day

 

The British had inhabited America since 1587 and exploited their resources such as tobacco and tea. Tensions began to rise between the British and Americans as the British Government pushed for their own financial gain and continued to exploit American goods through taxation. Founding Father and head of the Sons of Liberty organisation Samuel Adams, and his men, boarded three ships in Boston harbour and threw 342 chests of tea overboard. This became known as The Boston Tea Party of 1773. Other violent acts also arose from the tension over the taxation of tea and other products. The Boston Tea Party was one of the main events that started the American Revolutionary War.

In 1775, the 13 colonies that made up America declared a war of independence against Britain. On July 2, 1776, the Congress secretly voted for independence from Great Britain. Two days later, on July 4, 1776, the final wording of the Declaration of Independence was approved, and the document was published. The Pennsylvania Evening Post was the first newspaper to print the Declaration on July 6, 1776.  The first public reading of the Declaration of Independence was on July 8, 1776. Delegates began to sign the Declaration of Independence on August 2, 1776. In 1870, Independence Day was made an unpaid holiday for federal employees. In 1941, it became a paid holiday for them. Independence Day became a federal holiday in 1870.

 

How do Americans celebrate Independence Day?

 

Fourth of July celebrations have taken various forms across the centuries.

In Bristol, Rhode Island, in 1777 there was a salute with 13 shotguns in the morning and evening of July 4. And in 1778, then general of the revolutionary army, George Washington, doubled his troops rum ration for the festivities.

 

 

Nowadays, fireworks are one of the most common ways to celebrate Independence Day. Displays are held in every major city and the White House also puts on its own show on the South Lawn. Generally,Fourth of July is a time to spend with family and friends, eating BBQs, watching firework displays and parades while surrounded by a large quantity of red, white and blue, stars and stripes themed paraphernalia.

 

It is time to remember those who worked hard to ensure a better future for the new generations. Happy Independence Day!
