The 4th of July in pictures: The USA’s biggest birthday party

3 July 2019

It’s a birthday party for everyone, young and old. It takes place at fairgrounds and parks, on beaches and streets, and in people’s backyards. It is the Fourth of July — Independence Day — the birthday of the United States of America.

July 4, 1776, was the culmination of a hard-fought battle for Americans’ right to self-governance and democratic rule. The U.S. supports people around the world today fighting for these same freedoms.

On July 3, 1776, expecting that the Continental Congress would adopt the Declaration of Independence, John Adams wrote to his wife that the day “will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with [shows], games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward forever more.”
