    July 4 - Significance & History of this Date

    In 1776, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, which proclaimed the independence of the USA from Great Britain and its king. The declaration came 442 days after the first volleys of the American Revolution were fixed at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts and marked an ideological expansion of the conflict that would eventually encourage France's intervention on behalf of the Patriots. The first major American opposition to British policy came in 1765 after Parliament passed the Stamp Act, a taxation measure to raise revenues for a standing British army in America. This happened on 4 July.
