God Bless America!

We celebrate American Independence Day on the 4th of Juy every year.  We think of July 4, 1776 as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the USA as an independent nation.  However...this was NOT the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence - they did that on July 2, 1776.  The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independent on July 4, 1776.

So...how did the 4th of July become a national holiday?  For the first 15-20 years after the Declaration was written, it was not celebrated much on any date.  Celebrations of the 4th of July became more common as the years went on and in 1870, almost 100 years after the Declaration was written, Congress first declated July 4th to be a national holiday.

 

We wish you all a safe and happy July 4th!
