Independence Day (United States)
Federal holiday in the United States
Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on July 4, 1776.

The Congress had voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2, but it was not declared until July 4.
