4th of July - the day that marks the birth of the American nation
"Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land
Unto All the Inhabitants Thereof"
The day celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence on 4 July 1776, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The first stroke of the pen signalled the beginning of the end of colonialism just as the final flourish laid the cornerstone of democracy.
So strike up the band! Wave the flags!
Join the parade! Light the fireworks!
Its America's birthday!
