On July 4th, 1776 the second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence announcing that the colonies have officially broken their ties from Great Britain.
In Philadelphia the euphoria was so great that the American independence was celebrated en mass. However the observance of Independence Day was adopted officially as a federal holiday much later in 1870.
Ok, enough with the history lesson - let's go party in the spirit of the Philadelphians!
Happy 4th of July!
