The Greatest Holiday of them all!  The day we celebrate, commemorate and remember the establishment of our new nation by the forming and signing of the Declaration of Independence approved by the Continental Congress, which set 13 colonies on the road to freedom.  Here are some Fun Facts about the 4th of July:

US Population in July, 1776:  2.5 million  (Today's population this July Fourth:  311.7 million)

31 - Places have “liberty” in their names. The most populous one as of April 1, 2010, is Liberty, Mo. (29,149) Iowa, with four, has more of these places than any other state: Libertyville, New Liberty, North Liberty and West Liberty.
