The day before the 4th of July

 known as the Fourth of July ,
Independence Day, July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, the representatives of the 13 colonies while  fighting in the revolutionary struggle began to seek out a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. From there, from the 1st till around the 4th the Declaration of Independence was born,& drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 until the now the 4th of July  has been celebrated as the birth of Americas independence where traditions from cookouts,firework displays,parades & other festive gatherings are carried out to celebrate.
