Independence Day, commonly known as July 4th or the Fourth of July, commemorates the Continental Congress’ adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The document, primarily written by Thomas Jefferson, served as a formal announcement that the 13 American colonies were no longer part of the British Empire and would henceforth be free and independent states. Regarded as the birthday of the United States of America, the day is typically celebrated with parades, fireworks, ceremonies, barbecues and family gatherings.

Happy 4th all!

This Independence Day let us remember: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,...” From the United States Declaration of Independence.  I'm one of those wonks that carry a copy of the Declaration and the US Constitution with me at all times.   Wink

For those interested, I strongly recommend reading "1776" by David McCullough (also wrote the Great Bridge about the Brooklyn Bridge), an informative read in the Michner-style, but a bit more free-flowing.  

Happy Independence Day and may we continue to "hold these truths to be self-evident"!
