In the summer of 1776, the Second Continental Congress commissioned a five man committee to draft a formal statement supporting the 13 Colonies’ right to break from England. Thomas Jefferson acted as the principle author of the document with input from his fellow committee members Benjamin Franklin and John Adams. The Congress reconvened to consider and revise Jefferson’s declaration before officially adopting the Declaration on July 4th. The men who signed the Declaration put their lives at risk to stand up for American liberty, and their bravery paved the way for the formation of our great country. Today, the Declaration of Independence, and the date it was agreed upon, is recognized worldwide as a symbol of freedom and equality, inspiring young minds to stand against tyranny and prejudice.
Independence Day has been celebrated in one form or another since the nation’s birth in 1776. Philadelphia hosted the first celebration of the day on July 4, 1777 while the nation was still embroiled in war. By 1781, Massachusetts became the first state to make July 4th an official state holiday, with other states following its lead. The holiday was celebrated in the following years but became especially widespread following the War of 1812, when the United States successfully repelled an invasion by England. Congress made July 4th a federal holiday in 1941, securing Independence Day as a day for Americans to celebrate its heritage.
