What is Independence Day?

Independence Day, also known as the 4th of July, is a national holiday in the United States that celebrates the ratification of the Declaration of Independence, which took place on July 4, 1776. On this day, the Second Continental Congress declared that the thirteen colonies of America would be free from the rule of Great Britain and would no longer be under the control of its monarch, King George III. These states would be independent and united, creating the United States.

This was actually declared two days earlier, on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress approved the resolution of independence proposed by Richard Henry Lee in June 1776. Once passed and approved, Congress began work on the Declaration of Independence which officially declared and explained the decision to become independent from Britain.

It was written by a committee of five, of which future president Thomas Jefferson was the principal author. Other committee members included another future president, John Adams, as well as Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert R. Livingston. The Declaration was discussed, debated and edited over the next two days, finally being approved on July 4, marking the day we celebrate today as Independence Day.

Today, Independence Day is usually celebrated with a long weekend, barbecues, fireworks, parades, festivals, and more. Most people have the day off, which allows many to get together and celebrate with friends and family. Many also use this day to celebrate freedom, history, traditions, and the government of the United States.
