Independence Daze: A History of July Fourth
June 29, 2012
In the early days of our nation, July Fourth wasn’t an official holiday at all. In fact, it wasn’t until 1938 that it became a paid day-off. The American History Guys at BackStory Radio dig into the history of the holiday and the ways in which the meaning of the Declaration has changed since 1776.
