Time to celebrate in true American fashion with parades, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family gatherings, barbecues and fireworks!
As John Adams write to his wife, Abigail:
The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. 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.
The date was chosen as July 4 not July 2 but John Adams certainly got the sentiment correct. July 4th is a day for us to remember our ROOTS … our Founding Fathers and the sacrifices that they made to birth our great nation.
