The vision for Independence Day celebrations can be traced back to a letter from John Adams to his wife, Abigail, in which Adams speaks of dreams of “pomp and parade, shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other.” Although Adams originally thought America’s independence would be celebrated July 2, Congress delayed the signing of the Declaration of Independence by two days. What would transpire thereafter would change the world and shape a nation.
