FOURTH OF JULY

The tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies were finding a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence. The historic document was drafted by Thomas Jefferson.

Commemorate America's independence, fireworks, parades and more with patriotic gifts.
