Do you remember the reason for the 4th of July holiday?
All over the country US citizens are are celebrating the 4th of July. This is a great American holiday with much symbolic content for the nation.
Can you summarize why?
On the 4th of July in 1776 the thirteen English colonies in North America, after much debate and deliberation agreed and produced a document called The Declaration of Independence.
This document bound all the colonies together in a united cause declaring freedom from England, and specifically from the King of England.
Thus this date, of 4 July 1776 is considered the birthday of the United States of America.
The United States gained independence from Britain. It wasn't actually the fourth of July, but that is when we celebrate it.
