Rules & more down at bottom...
Welcome! Here, you will learn all about Independence Day. We know it is too early, but it is a great way to learn more about how it started. It affects the world now, and everyone should learn about July fourth, a remarkable day.
What is Independence Day?
Independence Day is a day where Americans celebrate every Fourth of July and to see fireworks. It celebrates the passes of the Declaration of Independence which was signed on July 4th, 1776. As a short summary, the British colony was taking over the colonists' colony, which made Samuel Huntington, Thomas Jefferson and other colonist to sign the Declaration of Independence for their own freedom. This is how America was born. So people celebrate as like a thanks to the Declaration.
How it beginned!
It all started long ago, Britian was controlling America from the years 1607 to 1783. The Americans did NOT like this, they wanted our country to be fair and be Independent. They did this because many colonists felt that they should not pay the taxes, because they were passed in England by Parliament, not by their own colonial governments. They protested, saying that these taxes violated their rights as British citizens. The colonists started to resist by boycotting, or not buying, British goods. So Great Britian got a little mad and they went to war with America.
Why It is Important
We celebrate the Declaration of Independence for two reasons. It represents an official severing of ties between the original 13 colonies and the rule of Great Britain. The holiday itself commemorates the first time the 13 colonies officially declared America as an independent country, and although the Revolutionary War wasn't won until 1783, we celebrate the symbolism of the declaration each year on July 4.
Who celebrates independence day
According to History.com, Americans and Asians celebrate it. But some Indians do not celebrate it. Before the Declaration of Independence, Native Americans and Indigenous People were slaved and could not be allowed to vote. Some Asians believe that Declaration of Independence was a nightmare, but it saved them. If the Declaration never was created, America would've been ruled, and everyone would've to work as slaves. It would've been a disaster.
1. We Didn't Actually Declare Independence on the 4th of July.
One of the greatest misconceptions of the 4th of July lies in the name and date. It is widely believed that America declared their independence from Britain on July 4, 1776. However, the official vote actually took place two days before and the “Declaration” was published in papers on July 4.
2. Americans Will Enjoy 150 Million Hot Dogs During the 4th
According to the National Sausage and Hot Dog Council (NHDSC), Americans are expected to eat 150 million hot dogs over the July 4th holiday. This is part of an estimated 7 billion that are expected to be eaten during the summer season from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
