The United States will commemorate Independence Day on July 4, 2022. The Declaration of Independence was originally drafted by Thomas Jefferson

drafted by Thomas Jefferson in consultation with fellow committee members John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and William Livingston. 

The Congress had approved independence from Great Britain on July 2; however, the revision process was not actually finished until two days later.

The original event was based on the yearly king's birthday celebration, which included bell ringing, bonfires, sombre processions, and oratory. 

Particularly in the 17th and 18th centuries, when dynastic and religious disputes plagued the British Empire (and most of the rest of Europe).
