Fourth of July is one of the biggest celebrations in the USA, as it is "Independence Day" here.
But some other things happened also on this day and insterestingly enough some of those "other things" also are related to the formation and history of this country. Here is a short list of some of them:
Also, oddly enough, it was on July 4 that three of the five first Presidents of the USA died: in 1826, death claimed the second and third presidents of the United States; John Adams died at age 90 in Braintree, Mass., while Thomas Jefferson died at 83 at Monticello, his home near Charlottesville, Va. Five years later, in 1831, James Monroe, the fifth president of the United States, died at age 73 in New York City.
