We usually call it July 4th or Fourth of July or Independence Day. Yes, it’s the birthday of the United States of America’s independence, which means that it’s time for the state to go back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. How’s the history of 4th July?
Cited U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Indonesia, friction between the American Colonies and Britain had been building for more than 10 years before the Declaration was adopted. The colonies asked Britain for a larger role in making decisions that affected them, especially in regard to taxation. So, the British Parliament passed various tax laws and the colonies kept protesting for a long time until the Parliament passed a law stating it had the right to legislate for the colonies in all matters.
In April 1775, the initial battles of the Revolutionary War happened when actions from a few colonists who desired complete independence from Great Britain were considered radical. In 1776, the independence movement then grew rapidly.
The movement went with a resolution introduced by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia in Congress which stated “That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States…”
That’s not all, there was also a historic document that contains the American Colonies’ declaration of their freedom from British rule. It was drafted by Thomas Jefferson and a few minor literary changes were made by Benjamin Franklin and John Adams. The draft was finally adopted by delegates from 13 colonies on July 2nd, 1776, and the Congress adopted the final draft of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776
