According to Wikipedia – Independence Day (colloquially the Fourth of July) is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence, which was ratified by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776.

The Second Continental Congress declared that the Thirteen Colonies were no longer subject (and subordinate) to the monarch of BritainKing George III, and were now united, free, and independent states.[1] The Congress voted to approve independence on July 2 and adopted the Declaration of Independence two days later, on July 4.[1]

4th of July is marked by political speeches, ceremonies, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and other public and private festivities honoring American history, culture, and customs!
