Independence Day

Independence Day

Series: A True Book
by Nancy I. Sanders
On Independence Day, we celebrate the United States' birthday--the day the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776. This book gives a history of the events leading up to the fateful day when the American colonies declared their freedom from Great Britain. It then tells how Independence Day has been celebrated over the years, as well as how people celebrate it today with parades, picnics, community gatherings, and, of course, fireworks! The True Book holidays subset introduces readers to the origins, purpose, and ways of celebrating a variety of national, ethnic, civic, religious, and historical holidays.
