Independence Day celebrates the birthday of the United States of America. Founded July 4th 1776, with the signing of the Declaration of Independence, America is celebrating it’s 234th birthday this year (2010)
The 4th of July is a time for the Red White and Blue. A time for Picnics, Parades and Marching Bands.
