What is Independence Day

Patriotism is taught!

Independence Day is the Federal Holiday commemorating the birth of the United States of America. On July 4th, 1776, America declared its independence from Britain. Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is one of the United States of America’s most cherished symbols of liberty. Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people for the ideals of individual liberty. What Jefferson did was to summarize this philosophy in “self-evident truths” and set forth a list of grievances against the King to justify before the world the breaking of its ties between the colonies and Britain.
