4th of July - Independence Day - History.com - Sent Using Google Toolbar

I'm not really a "celebrator" of anything, miserable grumpy old man that I am, but I suppose that shouldn't stop others from celebrating whatever, and since I know there are quite a few of you in the Us of A who log in regularly to this Site, and others from "mr le marquis", I thought you may like to have a look at this!
At least you'll learn a bit more about WHY you've been celebrating!

The Fourth of July

Independence Day

Independence Day is more than a chance for family and friends throughout the country to gather for barbecues and fireworks displays, it is an annual celebration to commemorate the courage and faith of our founding fathers in their pursuit of liberty.

Uncover the history behind America's birthday and the sacrifices made by the extraordinary leaders who, at great personal risk, struggled to unite a young nation. Read the Declaration of Independence that laid down the foundation for the U.S. Constitution, endorsing the fundamental principles of freedom we still uphold to this day.
