THE FOURTH OF JULY – THE US INDEPENDENCE DAY
The Fourth of July is the biggest national holiday of the US. It is celebrated as the birthday of the country with the parades, picnics, and fireworks. On July 4, 1776, when 13 British colonies were fighting against Great Britain, the Continental Congress adopted a resolution, which has come to be known as the Declaration of Independence. These 13 colonies became the first states of the United States of America.
The resolution was written by Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826). He was the bearer of advanced views that have not lost their significance for the social struggle in modern America. In fact, the Declaration of Independence was a letter from the Continental Congress to the king of Great Britain. Thomas Jefferson wrote to the king that the people in America did not want to pay taxes if they were not allowed to decide how to spend them.
The letter declared that the people in America wanted to be free and independent of England from that time on. So the letter was called the Declaration of Independence.
But the Declaration was just a letter; it did not make the American people independent of England. The people had to fight for their independence. The Declaration is one of the most important political documents in the western world. It had a decisive influence on the development of the American Revolution.
The United States Constitution was written in 1787, but it came into use in 1789. The Constitution established the country’s political system. The Constitution is the basis of all government and laws. The United States has experienced enormous growth and change. Yet the Constitution works as well today as when it was written. One reason is that the Constitution can be amended, or changed.
