“ The Fourth of July” is “America´s birthday”. The National Day of The United States in which all Americans remember the ideals of liberty and equality for everybody. It´s associated with fireworks, barbecues, concerts, baseball games, political speeches, etc.
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION Around 1765 in America there were 13 British colonies and the Americans started to protest because of the high taxes to Great Britain, so the interest of an independent America with its own government began. As soon as the Americans decided to achieve this the Revolution started. During the America Revolution, the legal separation of the thirteen Colonies from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776. And, a group of American like, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and others, wrote The Declaration of Independence. In which they wanted equality and liberty for all men. And, of course, the creation of The United States of America.
The war continued after this. And the French took part with the Americans in 1778, and in 1781 American and French soldiers won an important battle in Virginia. So, 2 years later, America and Great Britain signed the final peace treaty in Paris. Then, U.S.A became an Independence Nation. On 4 July this document was approved and in 8 July it was read in public. This was in Philadelphia, Pensilvania. After reading it, they rang a bell. So, it became a tradition called the Liberty Bell.
