Because it is what we have always done. In 1777, the first anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia and Boston held massive celebrations that featured fireworks. The events had all of the elements of typical future celebrations: the discharge of cannon (one round for each state in the union), the ringing of bells, a dinner, the use of music, the drinking of toasts, loud huzzas, a parade, fireworks, and dressing up of ships in the harbor in red, white and blue. The fireworks celebration that night began and ended with 13 fireworks being set off from the city’s commons. 42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot. www.smithsonianmag.com Fireworks Safety Tips A bicycle can’t stand on its own because it’s two tired.

The Story of the Fourth of July We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation. But July 4, 1776 wasn't the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence (they did that on July 2, 1776). It wasn’t the day we started the American Revolution either (that had happened back in April 1775). And it wasn't the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence (that was in June 1776). Or the date on which the Declaration was delivered to Great Britain (that didn't happen until November 1776). Or the date it was signed (that was August 2, 1776). Every month, look for the new trivia question. Here is this month’s trivia question: What year did Congress declare the Fourth of July a national holiday? A. 1777 B. 1870 C. 1826 D. 1776 So what did happen on July 4, 1776? The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. They'd been working on it for a couple of days after the draft was submitted on July 2nd and finally agreed on all of the edits and changes. Source: http://www.constitutionfacts.com/ July 4, 1776, became the date that was included on the Declaration of Independence, and the fancy handwritten copy that was signed in August (the copy now displayed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.) It’s also the date that was printed on the Dunlap Broadsides, the original printed copies of the Declaration that were circulated throughout the new nation. So when people thought of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 was the date they remembered. In contrast, we celebrate Constitution Day on September 17th of each year, the anniversary of the date the Constitution was signed, not the anniversary of the date it was approved. If we’d followed this same approach for the Declaration of Independence we’d being celebrating Independence Day on August 2nd of each year, the day the Declaration of Independence was signed! http://www.constitutionfacts.com/us-founding-fathers/fascinating-facts/ We stand behind our work! 1180 Court St 27232 US Hwy 19 N 11930 US Hwy 19 N 3508 US Hwy 19 N 1406 4th Street N 380 34th Street N 5890 Park Blvd 6401 US Hwy 19 N 3902 S.
