RED, WHITE, AND BLUE-TIFUL: HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

Fun Fact: Did you know that John Adams, a Founding Father and the second president of the United States, refused to celebrate the Fourth of July? He firmly believed that the Second of July should be the designated U.S. Independence Day.

Richard Henry Lee, a Virginia statesman, proposed a motion for the colonies to declare America’s independence from Britain following the heat of the Revolutionary War and Great Britain tax in June 1776. Amid heated debate, a five-person committee was formed to draft an official independence document, and on July 2, the Continental Congress voted to approve the motion. America declared independence from Great Britain later on July 4, 1776.

This day is incredibly significant in American history. It marks the day the U.S. officially became a nation. The Fourth of July celebration includes festivities ranging from fireworks, parades, shopping sprees, land tours, and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.
