The 4th of July: How it started

The 4th of July as USA’s Independence Day dates back to the 18th century. On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence. This marked the thirteen American colonies’ break from Great Britian. The Declaration of Independence was written primarily by Thomas Jefferson. It outlined the problems that the 13 colonies had against King George III and British rule. Some of the main grievances outlined were unfair laws made that the colonies had no control over, taxes imposed by the king, and opposition against British troops that were stationed in the colonies.

After the Declaration of Independence was signed, the Revolutionary War intensified. The war eventually ended in 1793 with the Treaty of Paris was signed. The treaty recognized the United States as an independent nation, a fact we still celebrate hundreds of years later.

How will you celebrate?

So how do Americans choose to celebrate the 4th of July? Does one simply grab a cold beverage, light off some fireworks, and yell out, “Happy 4th of July!” to any and all passerbys? Well, yes and no. While food, fireworks, and a sense of patriotic unity rule the day, there are other ways to celebrate, too.

One very popular way to celebrate this year is by lounging at the pool, going for a swim or going boating to try and beat the heat. According to NPR, about 150 million people in the U.S. are affected this 4th of July weekend by extreme heat. There are excessive heat warnings in Mississippi, Arkansas, Arizona, Washington and other states.  This extreme heat might disrupt some fireworks shows as some states are experiencing elevated fire warnings. But on the other hand, the heat makes a nice cool dip in the pool all the more appetizing.

You can also celebrate the 4th by watching a local parade, or attending a community celebration, like a historical reenactment or a picnic.
