The Fourth of July is our nation’s birthday, our Independence Day from the oppression of colonization. In 1776, this was the day in which the original 13 United States freed themselves from the tyranny of English rule and declared its freedom from that oppressive situation.
Today, U.S. citizens celebrate July 4th as a day of freedom. People don’t usually recall the pain of being a colony of another nation. Generally, people celebrate the freedom that is associated with independence.
