'We the People'
is a revolutionary notion where The People grant government its rights, not the other way around.
The fourth of July in 1776 is known as Independence Day because that is the day that the Second Continental Congress adopted the full and formal Declaration of Independence.
Even though we had declared that we were independent, the American Revolution was still being fought, which meant that we were still not independent. So Independence Day celebrations during the American Revolution were modest.
But after the war ended in 1783, July 4th became the most patriotic holiday celebrated in the United States.
"America has brought more freedom and more prosperity to more people than any nation in the history of the world"
