Happy Birthday to the United States of America. The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave was born on the Fourth of July, 1776 with the signing of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia. It was read aloud in the major cities on this day proclaiming our country a new nation. Each July 4th we celebrate with lots of red white and blue, fairs and festivals, parades, and fireworks... but also with family, food and each other. It is time to be proud of who we are as one nation, but also time to relax and appreciate each other's company. Feel free to express your pride and joy with our free July Fourth ecard for Independence Day.
