For those that don't know... On July 4h, 1776, the thirteen (13) colonies claimed their Independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States.  Each year on July 4th, also known as Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event. This Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America is marked as the birth day of our independent nation.... 

But for those that are really into history - here's some interesting facts for you:

  • American revolution starts (April 1775)
  • Thomas Jefferson pens the first draft of the Declaration of Independence (June 1776)
  • The Continental Congress decided to declare Independence  (July 2, 1776)
  • Continental Congress approves final wording of Declaration of Independence  (July 4, 1776)
  • Declaration delivered to Great Britain (November 1776)
  • Date it was signed (August 2, 1776)
  • Thomas Jefferson and John Adams both die (July 4, 1826) 
  • Congress declares the "Fourth of July" to be a National Holiday (1870) 

Wow!  Nearly 100 years to get that official and in writing.  Today, it seems that things happen in the blink of an eye.  Having the convenience of options is a wonderful thing in a grab and go, fast paced demanding world we live in today.  Innovative Products understands that need and focuses on providing both balance on our rich heritage and history, and affordable price points in fun, interesting products that you can enjoy.  Our Independence Day Collection highlights that celebratory theme with neat little items that are honed to you, our readers and customers.

Thanks for the American history lesson, it was a good refresher crash course! It is interesting that both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams both died on July 4th, the very day we celebrate the freedom from tyranny so nobly fought. It is a good reminder of the blood, sweat, and tears that were shed, giving us cause to celebrate this holiday.

It’s pretty humbling to think that we can now freely purchase items from around the world with the click of a finger because of their sacrifices and American ingenuity!
