Fourth of July History

On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was ratified by the Second Continental Congress, which officially declared America as an independent nation. Before America got its independence, Great Britain comprised 13 colonies which had almost 2.5 million settlers. But soon, tensions among the colonies increased when Great Britain started having rigid control over them, which even led to the forced colonists paying increased taxes to the state. To end the colonial disruption, the American Revolution began. Thus, the resolution of independence was proposed in June 1776 by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia. On July 2, Lee's sanction was approved, and two days later (July 4), the Declaration of Independence was officially adopted. America became free from Great Britain on July 4, and thus, the day came to be recognized as US Independence Day.
