History of July 4th
The Fourth of July is a great time for families to come together and celebrate the independence of our amazing nation, the United States of America. A tradition since 1776, July 4th was quoted by one of our founding fathers himself, John Adams, as a "day that will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival. The celebrations should include pomp and parade, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other." The tradition of patriotic celebration became more widespread after the War of 1812, when the United States again faced Great Britain on U.S. soil, in which we defeated them a second time. 58 years later in 1870, July 4th was finally recognized as a federal holiday. Since July 4th falls in the middle of summer, it is a large focus for families to come together and be involved with BBQs, activities, and to end the nightly celebration with fireworks! Listed below are a few of our favorite July 4th celebrations that we want you to be a part of this Independence Day!
