Fun facts about Independence Day

here are 5 fun facts about Independence Day:

  1. July 4th was not actually the day that the Continental Congress declared independence from Great Britain. The resolution for independence was actually approved on July 2nd, and it wasn’t until two days later that the formal Declaration of Independence was adopted and signed by Congress.
  2. The original draft of the Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson, but it was edited and revised by other members of Congress before it was approved. In fact, more than 80 changes were made to the document before it was finalized.
  3. The American flag that we know today has gone through many changes over the years. The first version of the flag had 13 stars and stripes to represent the 13 colonies, but as more states were added to the Union, the design was modified. The current version has 50 stars and 13 stripes.
  4. The first Independence Day celebration was held on July 4, 1777, in Philadelphia. It featured a parade, a thirteen-gun salute, and fireworks. Today, fireworks remain one of the most popular ways to celebrate the holiday, with more than 16,000 fireworks displays held across the country each year.
  5. The tune “Yankee Doodle” was originally a British song that was sung to mock American colonists. However, after the colonists won the Revolutionary War, they turned the song into a patriotic anthem and it became a symbol of American pride and resilience. Today, “Yankee Doodle” is often played at parades and other Independence Day celebrations.
