Several Important Dates in U.S. History
Why We Celebrate July 4th and What Our independence Is Really All About.
Boston Tea Party – December 16, 1773. A protest to the Tea Act (tax imposed on tea by England). England trying to force people in the colonies to pay that tax was a big catalyst to our independence and becoming The United States Of America. The modern day Tea Party (TEA - Taxed Enough Already) is not a political party. They are individuals and organizations who resemble our forefathers who protested that tax by England.
Declaration of Independence – Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776. read the Declaration
In The Declaration of Independence, it clearly states ...
The United States Constitution (Constitution of the United States of America)
