RISMEDIA, July 4, 2007— Today, July Fourth, commonly known as Independence Day, is the federal holiday celebrating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly celebrated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, picnics, baseball games, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.
