Fourth Of July History
Independence Day also known as the Fourth of July has only been a federal holiday since 1941, but the celebration of the Independence goes way back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd of 1776 the Continental Congress voted in favor of the independence from Great Britain, and two days later, Thomas Jefferson drafted the historic document of the Declaration of Independence. Since that day, July 4th is celebrated as the birth of the United States Independence Day.
Independence Day Celebrations Before it Became a Holiday
Let’s go back in time before Independence Day became a National Holiday. On July 4th of 1777 the 1st annual commemoration of the independence in Philadelphia took place.
During the Revolutionary War in 1778, George Washington issued double rations of rum to his soldiers in order to celebrate the Independence Day. When the Revolutionary War ended, the Americans celebrated the Independence Day every year. July 4th A National Holiday In 1870 the United States Congress declared the 4th of July a federal holiday, but it was until 1941 that it was made a paid holiday to all federal employees. It is important to say that the United States Independence Day is considered the most important holiday in America, and the most common symbol that represents this holiday is the American flag.
