4th Of July Quotes: Independence Day of the United States, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth in the U.S., is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer part of the British Empire.

It’s easy to forget why we celebrate Independence Day, so here are some patriotic, inspirational quotes and saying that will make you proud to be an American.
