During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain in 1776 actually occurred on July 2, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence. It took two days of debating and revisions of wording to the Declaration, and finally, on July 4th, the Congress signed the most important document in the history of the United States of America.
Independence Day is often associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies.
Two signers of the Declaration of Independence, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, both served as presidents of the United States, and both died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the declaration. James Monroe, another founding father who was elected as president, also died on July 4, 1831. He was the third president in a row who died on the anniversary of independence.
The origin of the first American flag is unknown. Some historians believe it was designed by New Jersey Congressman Francis Hopkinson and sewn by Philadelphia seamstress Betsy Ross. For 23 years, the American flag had 15 stars and 15 strips with the addition of the 14th state Vermont and the 15th state Kentucky. The Act of April 4, 1818, went back to 13 strips and one star for each state, to be added to the flag on the Fourth of July following the admission of each new state was signed by President Monroe.
Today, the flag consists of 13 horizontal stripes representing the original 13 colonies and the 50 stars representing the 50 states of the Union. The colors of the flag are symbolic as well: red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and blue represents vigilance, perseverance and justice.
Throughout the month of July, the Emporium’s display case will be filled with political items and items of red, white, and blue. The multi-dealer shop is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours until 7 p.m. on Thursdays. The Emporium is located at 424 High St., in Burlington City, N.J.
