Why do we set off fireworks on the 4th of July?
Because it is what we have always done. In 1777, the first anniversary
of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia and
Boston held massive celebrations that featured fireworks.
The events had all of the elements
of typical future celebrations: the
discharge of cannon (one round for
each state in the union), the ringing
of bells, a dinner, the use of music,
the drinking of toasts, loud huzzas,
a parade, fireworks, and dressing
up of ships in the harbor in red,
white and blue.
The fireworks celebration that night
began and ended with 13 fireworks
being set off from the city’s

The Story of the Fourth of July
We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We
think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and
the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation. But July 4,
1776 wasn't the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare
independence (they did that on July 2, 1776). It wasn’t the day we started the
American Revolution either (that had happened back in April 1775). And it wasn't
the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence
(that was in June 1776). Or the date on which the Declaration was delivered to
Great Britain (that didn't happen until November 1776). Or the date it was signed
(that was August 2, 1776).
Every month, look for the new trivia
question. Here is this month’s trivia
What year did Congress declare the
Fourth of July a national holiday?
A. 1777
B. 1870
C. 1826
D. 1776
So what did happen on July 4, 1776? The Continental Congress approved the final
wording of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. They'd been working
on it for a couple of days after the draft was submitted on July 2nd and finally
agreed on all of the edits and changes.

July 4, 1776, became the date that was included on the Declaration of
Independence, and the fancy handwritten copy that was signed in August (the copy
now displayed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.) It’s also the date that
was printed on the Dunlap Broadsides, the original printed copies of the
Declaration that were circulated throughout the new nation. So when people
thought of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 was the date they
In contrast, we celebrate Constitution Day on September 17th of each year, the
anniversary of the date the Constitution was signed, not the anniversary of the date
it was approved. If we’d followed this same approach for the Declaration of
Independence we’d being celebrating Independence Day on August 2nd of each
year, the day the Declaration of Independence was signed!
