The depths of your celebrations, commemorations and carousing are revealed in this exciting collection from HISTORY. This summer, put on your red, white and blue and get ready to rejoice in the truth behind Independence Day with The History of the 4th of July. First observed in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776, the Fourth was not declared a legal holiday until 1941. Now an annual celebration honoring the courage and faith of our founding fathers in their pursuit of liberty, Independence Day is traditionally celebrated publicly with parades and pageants, patriotic speeches, and fireworks displays, and privately through family picnics and barbecues. Uncover with HISTORY the story behind America's birthday and the sacrifices made by the extraordinary leaders who, at great personal risk, struggled to unite a young nation.
