American Independence Day

American Independence Day


The United States celebrates its independence day on the 4th of July every year. The day is marked with lavish parades, firework displays, family gatherings and sporting events. Since 1870, the day has been an official federal holiday.

The date was chosen because the 4th of July in 1776 was the day on which the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the 13 colonies in America. America became independent of Great Britain.
