4th Of July Pictures – America Independence Day Images: 4 July is the most significant national holiday in the United States. It celebrates the Declaration of Independence, adopted on 4 July, 1776. The Thirteen Colonies of America declared themselves to be states and no longer part of the British Empire, though the revolutionary war continued for some time after.
What are the origins of 4th Of July?
On July 4th 1776 The Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress.
This was a letter sent to King George III formally explaining why the Continental Congress voted to declare independence from the British Empire.
It was intended to justify a revolt against the British with a list of charges against King George III. The main issue was taxation and a lack of control over their affairs, and this declaration marked the beginning of war against the British.
How do people celebrate it
Independence Day is a federal holiday. If July 4 is a Saturday, it is observed on Friday, July 3. If July 4 is a Sunday, it is observed on Monday, July 5. Government offices and schools are closed. Some businesses may be closed as well. In some years, many employees use a proportion of their vacation days to create a long weekend. This can cause congestion in some places, particularly towards popular holiday destinations.
There are many public events, parades, shows and fireworks displays. This may cause local disruption to traffic. Public transit systems do not usually operate on their regular timetables.
