15 Memorable Independence Day Photos Worth Printing

Fireworks, marching bands, and a mass of people parading down the streets carrying the American flag. With these sights and sounds, only one thing comes to mind: the 4th of July. The United States celebrates Independence Day to commemorate the country’s independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Since the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, every July 4 of the year thereafter is declared as a federal holiday—meaning, it’s the perfect time for picnics, concerts, political speeches, family reunions, and other similar celebrations.

Below are a few pictures showing Independence Day, seen from the lenses of those who took the time to capture the glorious feeling of joining in the nationwide celebration.
