Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on July 4, 1776.

Every person will have what they feel is most wonderful about the United States.  For some, it is the story of economic improvement, for others, it is immigration, for others it is winning, with our allies, the Second World War, for others it is the Civil Rights movement. So, look through the U.S. History and Culture Index and take your pick.
