The 4th of July celebrates America`s signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. It is a Federal holiday time to celebrate with fireworks, parades, cook-outs, and of course wearing the red, white and blue. It is the birth of American independence. The Continental Congress had already agreed to separate from Great Britain but the Declaration announced that decision to the world. The committee that drafted the Declaration of Independence included Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin. The American colonists had been upset with British rule for some time, mainly because the British government taxed them but didn't give them any sort of democratic representation. This led to conflict which inevitably escalated into open fighting between the colonial militias and the British army at Lexington and concord in Massachusetts, in April 1775.
