what did you all do to celebrate Independence Day (July 2nd)? figured there would be cookouts and photos.

for some reason, our town holds the fireworks and parade tomorrow.

  • For most, it is July 4th that is the big day.

    Pictures I am sure will be forthcoming.

    John Adams wrote Abigail Adams on July 3, 1776:

    Yesterday the greatest Question was decided, which ever was debated in America, and a greater perhaps, never was or will be decided among Men. A Resolution was passed without one dissenting Colony "that these united Colonies, are, and of right ought to be free and independent States, and as such, they have, and of Right ought to have full Power to make War, conclude Peace, establish Commerce, and to do all the other Acts and Things, which other States may rightfully do."

    You will see in a few days a Declaration setting forth the Causes, which have impell'd Us to this mighty Revolution, and the Reasons which will justify it, in the Sight of God and Man. A Plan of Confederation will be taken up in a few days. On July 2, 1776 the Association known as United Colonies of America officially became the United States of America .[ix]

    Consequently, it was the date of July 2, 1776 that John Adams thought would be celebrated by future generations.

    that's right. it's the day when congress resolved to declare us independent...

    the declaration wasn't even completely signed until 1781

    I think it had something to do with the competition from Zoroastrianism.
