“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.”
This is the statement wisely written on the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago by a Committee of Five: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert Livingston.
On July 2, 1776 the delegates of the Thirteen American Colonies engraved the History of the Free America at the Independence Hall of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by voting the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain.
Two days later the second Continental Congress issued a declaration of a new nation: the United States of America and established a Continental Army, with one of its members as Commander-in-Chief: George Washington of Virginia.
On July 4, 1776, the History of a new nation, with united citizens under the same beliefs, flag and anthem became the personification of freedom and abundant.
The most esoteric concept of abundance falls within understanding of being true to ourselves, family, friends, and rejoicing Freedom!
Today America celebrate proudly their freedom through traditional public and private activities, parties and events accompanied by fireworks.
The national 4th of July day, is a good occasion not only for family reunions or vacations but also for political speeches. In the nation capital we will enjoy tonight the most impressive fireworks of the year displayed over the White House sky.
The American Revolution against Great Britain started on May 10, 1773, with a protest known as The Boston Tea Party in Massachusetts. The Sons of Liberty organization destroyed an entire shipment of tea sent by the British East India Company. This was done in opposition to the Act-Legislation which had given East India Company the monopoly over the sales of tea in the Thirteen Colonies.
Only two of the thirteen Founding Fathers of the United States, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, served as Presidents of the United States. And they both died on the same day, at the 50th anniversary of Independence Day, on July 4, 1826.
The 30th President of United States, Calvin Coolidge, is the only US President whose birthday is on Independence Day, he was born on July 4, 1872.
Happy Independence day USA!
