July 4 is when the United States celebrates its Independence from Great Britain. The Declaration of Independence was adopted July 4, 1776. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both signed the Declaration of Independence and then later they became Presidents of The United States. Both men died on July 4th. Another President, James Monroe, died on July 4th. Calvin Coolidge is the only President to be born on July 4th.
My brother and his family went to Washington DC to see the fireworks on July 4th. I have never seen such amazing fireworks before. This photo was taken during the finale with my phone.
I hope your Independence Day, whenever celebrated, is a good one.
