Revolutionary 4th Of July
Independance Day-July 4TH 1776
Do you know what why Americans celebrate the 4th of July?
Movies have been made , songs written and sung , poems recited and people have risked their lives for this historic event in America.So I decided to find out why this day was and is important for Americans.
How would you feel if someone older than you ,like an older brother or sister kept telling you what and how to do things,then kept asking for more and more money,kinda like taking your allowance and not letting you decide rules for yourself.
It would make me pretty mad after a while , and thats exactly how the the colonist felt up until 1776.
Great Britain was like an older brother and kept trying to make the rules, and wanting more tax money. The people who had moved to this new land to start fresh were working very hard to make new homes and build places ,it is never easy starting out from scratch.
Eventually they got mad at the leaders of Great Britain ,because they wanted to make some new rules for their new land, decide for themselves who would be in charge and how to spend their own money.
This is called 'Independance'. Some of the men got together and decided they needed to discuss how to get their freedom ,not just for a little while but for all future generations. Their new homeland was called America, so they were called Americans.
Thomas Jefferson was one of the men in this group ,and he wrote all of their ideas down .This was called the first draft. A few changes were made later, and once they all agreed on how they wanted America to be the paper was called
The Declaration Of Independance' The leaders of the new land, met and signed this document in a place called Pennsylvania,USA
