Why Do We Celebrate Independence Day?
Let’s have a quick history lesson. 🙂
We celebrate Independence Day because it is when our country became independent from Britain. On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress voted to approve the Declaration of Independence. This document declared that the thirteen American colonies were free and independent states and no longer under British rule.
The Declaration of Independence was a turning point in American history and led to the American Revolution. The American Revolution was a war between the thirteen colonies and Britain. The colonists fought for their independence from Britain and ultimately won the battle.
After the war, the United States of America was formed as a free and independent country. July 4th is an important day in American history and is celebrated as a national holiday.
