July 4th in America is a time for all Americans to reflect on the freedoms our forefathers once bestowed upon us. It’s also the time to celebrate being an American with family and friends. This past year has certainly been trying for Americans. From the pandemic to now attempting to use various ways to limit our freedoms, it is time for Americans to rise and fight back for the pursuit of happiness. There is no better way to show pride and love for your country than by wearing a piece of handmade patriotic jewelry.
The History of July 4, 1776
On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress meeting in Pennsylvania adopted the Declaration of Independence. During the meeting, Virginia statesman Richard Henry Lee motioned for the 13 American colonies to declare independence from Britain (Source: https://www.rd.com/article/4th-of-july-history/).
Before America became its own nation, it was comprised of thirteen colonies established by Great Britain. These colonies were New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. Tensions in the thirteen colonies grew when Great Britain attempted to employ taxes on the colonists.
It was on that day America was born and became a free nation with rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
