From the History of the Independence Day
Independence Day is the day of signing the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America in 1776, which proclaimed the independence of the United States from the United Kingdom of Great Britain. It is celebrated on July 4. Independence Day is considered to be the birthday of the United States as a free and independent country.
The holiday reminds that on July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was adopted. On July 2, the Second Continental Congress voted in favor of a resolution of independence, which had been proposed for consideration by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia. At that time, the residents of 13 British colonies, which were located along the east coast of today's territory of the United States, waged war with the English king and parliament in connection with the fact that the British Parliament issued the Currency Law which prohibited the administration of the American colonies to issue their own unsecured and uncontrolled printed money and obliged them to pay all taxes in the future with gold and silver coins. In other words, the law forcibly transferred the colony to the gold standard. The war began in 1775. The Declaration of Independence was prepared by the Committee of Five headed by Thomas Jefferson. The Congress discussed and revised the declaration accepting it, as a result, on July 4. For the first time in an official document, the colonies were called the United States of America.
Since that time the fourth of July has been celebrated as the principal holiday of the nation, the Independence Day. Most Americans call this holiday simply by its date that is the Fourth of July. The festival is usually accompanied by firework displays, contests, fun-fairs, picnics, performances, sport matches, family gatherings, politicians' addresses to the people, ceremonies, and other family and public events which are typical for the United States. Each of the above events can involve using banners with various purposes.
