But July 4 is celebrated as Independence Day, as the date marked the acceptance of the Declaration of Independence after Congress debated the terms and wording of it.

The date marked a landmark moment in the history of the American Revolution.

Seeking independence, the American colonies famously proclaimed “no taxation without representation” in anger that they had no representatives in the British Parliament but were still subjected to tax and British rules.

The American Revolutionary War took place between 1775 and 1783, culminating in British defeat and recognition of the sovereignty of the United States.
