    Hey fellow American players on Athion!. i'd like to wish all of You guys a very safe and happy 4th of July!

    And those of you who do not know why we Americans are celebrating this day, ill give u a quick world history lesson. We Americans celebrate this day becuase we won our Independance from England to become our own free Nation back in 1776.

    lol mind if I make a correction? The 4th of July is not to celebrate the actual gaining of independence. It's to celebrate the signing of the declaration of independence. The revolution began months later and was only considered a colonist victory after the treaty of versailles was signed in Paris in 1783 and the United States was deemed a separate country from colonial England.

    Technically signing the Declaration of Independence gained our independence , so we are essentially celebrating gaining our independence. Hence why it is also called 'Independence Day.'

    Well, just because you declare you independence doesn't actually mean you are actually now independent.
