Happy birthday, America!

The 4th of July is Independence Day in the United States.  It was 239 years ago, in 1776, that our Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress paving the way for the formation of a new nation.  Throughout the country there will be parades, picnics, fireworks, and concerts to celebrate our country's birthday.  Happy birthday America!
