Independence Day known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States. “In the land of the free and the home of the brave”(quote from national anthem) This is a great occasion to celebrate with barbecues, fireworks, picnics, family gatherings including all kind of parties,but why is that?Just to remind on July 4, 1776, America claimed independence from Britain. That day Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, drafted by Thomas Jefferson. Historic document announced that the 13 American colonies, regarded themselves as independent states,not a part of Great Britain. New Union was formed with a new nation know the United States of America.
