Patriotic holidays, like 4th of July, usually mark a milestone achievement of some sort for our country. In case you tend to get your nation's holidays confused (and we can understand why you would), below are some fun and interesting facts to set you straight:
4th of July – While historians debate this, July 4, 1776 is the day Congress approved the final Declaration of Independence document. While Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams all said that they signed it on this day, historians have determined that it was actually signed a month after its adoption. Declaration of Independence signers and presidents, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, both died on the same day – July 4, 1826 – which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. James Monroe, a Founding Father, also died on July 4, 1831. On Independence Day, Americans tend to gather with family and friends to celebrate by barbecuing and watching a fireworks display, while celebrating their freedom to do so!
Flag Day – This holiday is celebrated on June 14 and commemorates the United States adopting their current flag. The United States Army also celebrates the Army's birthday on this date. The week of June 14 is National Flag Week and Americans are encouraged to fly a flag during these seven days.
Memorial Day – Celebrated on the last Monday in May, this holiday is celebrated in remembrance of the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Following tradition, the American flag is raised to the top of the staff and then lowered to the half-staff position, where it stays until noon. It is then raised for the remainder of the day.
