     On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress unanimously adopted the Declaration of
     Independence, announcing the colonies' separation from Great Britain. The Constitution pro-
     vides the legal and governmental framework for the United States, however, the Declaration,
     with its eloquent assertion "all Men are created equal," is equally beloved by the American
     people.
     Philadelphians marked the first anniversary of American independence with a spontaneous
     celebration, which is described in a letter by John Adams to Abigail Adams. However, ob-
     serving Independence Day only became commonplace after the War of 1812. Soon, events
     such as groundbreaking ceremonies for the Erie Canal and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
     were scheduled to coincide with July 4th festivities.
     In 1859, the Banneker Institute of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, urged African Americans to
     celebrate Independence Day while bearing witness to the inconsistencies between the ideals
     espoused in the Declaration of Independence and the practice of slavery. Banneker's orator
     of the day, Mr. Jacob C. White Jr., also promised his audience a brighter future:
           We have learned by experience and by the comparison of ourselves with people
           similarly situated, to hope that, at some day not very far in futurity, our grievances
           will be redressed, that our long lost rights will be restored to us, and that, in the full
           stature of men, we will stand up, and with our once cruel opponents and oppressors
           rejoice in the Declaration of our common country, and hail with them the approach
           of the glorious natal day of the Great Republic.
     By the 1870s, the Fourth of July was the most important secular holiday on the calendar.
     Congress passed a law making Independence Day a federal holiday on June 28, 1870. Even
     far-flung communities on the western frontier managed to congregate on Independence Day.
     In an American Life Histories: Manuscripts from the Federal Writers' Project, 1936-1940
     interview, Miss Nettie Spencer remembered the Fourth as the "big event of the year. Every-
     one in the countryside got together on that day for the only time in the year." She continued,
           There would be floats in the morning and the one that got the [girls?] eye was the
           Goddess of Liberty. She was supposed to be the most wholesome and prettiest girl
           in the countryside — if she wasn't she had friends who thought she was. But the
           rest of us weren't always in agreement on that…Following the float would be the
           Oregon Agricultural College cadets, and some kind of a band. Sometimes there
           would be political effigies.
          Just before lunch - and we'd always hold lunch up for an hour - some Senator or
          lawyer would speak. These speeches always had one pattern. First the speaker
          would challenge England to a fight and berate the King and say that he was a
          skunk. This was known as twisting the lion's tail. Then the next theme was that any
          one could find freedom and liberty on our shores. The speaker would invite those
          who were heavy laden in other lands to come to us and find peace. The speeches
          were pretty fiery and by that time the men who drank got into fights and called each
          other Englishmen. In the afternoon we had what we called the 'plug uglies' — funny
          floats and clowns who took off on the political subjects of the day…The Fourth was
          the day of the year that really counted then. Christmas wasn't much; a Church tree
          or something, but no one twisted the lion's tail.
