Independence Day In The USA

In June 1776, during the revolutionary war, the representatives of the 13 colonies presented a resolution drafted by Thomas Jefferson that would declare independence from Great Britain. The Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later on July 4th, the delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence.  July 4th continues to be celebrated as the birth of American independence.

Have a happy and safe Independence Day!
