Independence Day

The United States of America celebrates Independence Day on July the 4th -  an important national holiday commemorating the Declaration of Independence in 1776. This day is commonly considered as the birthday of the US. 

George Washington issued double rations of rum to all his soldiers to mark the anniversary of independence in 1778, and in 1781, several months before the key American victory at the Battle of Yorktown, Massachusetts became the first state to make July the 4th an official state holiday. The war for Independence finally ended officially in September of 1783.
