Happy Independence Day!

"America celebrates July 4 as Independence Day because it was on July 4, 1776, that members of the Second Continental Congress, meeting in Philadelphia, adopted the final draft of the Declaration of Independence." ...

"I believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival ... It ought to be celebrated by pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other ... " —John Adams, second President of the United States, writing to his wife, Abigail
