History of Independence Day

On July 4th 1776, the United States of America proclaimed its independence from England by signing the Declaration of Independence.

While the signing of the Declaration itself was not completed until August, the Fourth of July holiday is seen as the official anniversary of U.S. independence.

Although Philadelphians marked the first anniversary of independence in 1777 with spontaneous celebrations in the streets of Philadelphia, the first recorded use of the name "Independence Day" wasn't until 1791 and Independence Day celebrations only became common after the War of 1812.

By the 1870s, Independence Day had become the most important secular holiday on the American calendar and has transformed into what is known as the 4th of July today.

In 1870, The U.S. Congress made Independence Day an unpaid holiday for federal employees, though it wasn't until 1941 that Congress declared Independence Day to be a paid federal holiday.

How is Independence Day celebrated?

Independence Day is the most patriotic and enthusiastically celebrated of all America's holidays. There will be parades, barbeques, picnics and fireworks throughout the country.

Three facts about USA Independence Day

Approximately 74 million Americans participated in a Fourth of July barbecue in 2006.

John Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, signed the declaration first but his signature was so large it left little room for the others. The term "John Hancock" is still used as a slang term for a signature in the US today.

Founding Father John Adams would turn down invitations to July 4 celebrations, believing that July 2 (the date the Continental Congress voted for American independence) was the correct date to celebrate Independence Day.
