🗣 Happy Independence Day everyone! Time for a little history: Did you know that the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution?
On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence drafted by Thomas Jefferson. Since then, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence!
Festivities including concerts, bonfires, parades, and the firing of cannons and muskets usually accompanied the first public readings of the Declaration of Independence, beginning immediately after its adoption. Philadelphia held the first annual commemoration of independence on July 4, 1777, while Congress was still occupied with the ongoing war.
Meanwhile, George Washington issued double rations of rum to all his soldiers to mark the anniversary of independence in 1778, and in 1781, several months before the key American victory at the Battle of Yorktown, Massachusetts became the first state to make July 4th an official state holiday.
And now, in for a fun fact? John Adams, one of the USA’s founding fathers, believed that July 2nd was the correct date on which to celebrate the birth of American independence, and would reportedly turn down invitations to appear on July 4th events in protest. Also, Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4, 1826—the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Really now, what are the odds?
