Independence Day, also known as Fourth of July, celebrates the United States of America's declaration of independence from Britain on July 4, 1776 (adopted on July 2, 1776, but the document was not publicly read until July 4, 1776).

Along with private and public events (especially television programs) celebrating U.S. history, government, and traditions, Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues / cook-outs / picnics, fairs, concerts, family activities, and  baseball games.
