Summary:
Throughout America, the 4th of July is a summer celebration of beaches, barbecues and the birth of the nation, where parades march down Main Street and the night sky lights up with stunning fireworks displays. But how did these traditions begin?

From the Continental Congress to the explosions that light up the skies nationwide, THE HISTORY CHANNEL presents an affectionate look at Independence Day. Journey back to the very first celebration--in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776--when the Declaration of Independence was read aloud to the citizens and the city bells rang in a proclamation of freedom. Though these humble beginnings would eventually become the all-out festival of today, Independence Day--fascinatingly enough--wasn't legally declared a holiday until 1941!

This entertaining and illuminating presentation also includes footage of 4th of July parades and fireworks nationwide, capturing the ways America commemorates its freedom.
