Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a U.S. federal holiday celebrating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Declaration was the declaring of our independence from Great Britain.

Congress established Independence Day as a holiday in 1870, and in 1938 Congress reaffirmed it as a paid holiday for federal employees. Today, communities across the nation mark this major midsummer holiday with parades, firework displays, picnics and performances of "The Star-Spangled Banner" and marches by John Philip Sousa.
