July 4th, 2014 – Happy Independence Day To Fans In The United States Of America

A very big happy Independence day greetings to our loyal fans in the US.

How Independence day came to be

In 1776, Richard Henry Lee, who was born in Virginia but schooled in England, proposed that the 13 American colonies should declare their independence from Britain.

A committee of five men, including Thomas Jefferson, was appointed to build a case for severing ties with Britain and draft the Declaration of Independence. Congress voted in favour of independence on 2 July and it was formally issued two days later, on 4 July 1776.

The Declaration of Independence was first read out to cheering crowds on 8 July, and by 15 July all 13 American colonies had approved it (New York previously abstained from voting).

God bless America, God bless Nigeria, God bless NaijaGists *wink*

Enjoy your long weekend guys and stay safe.
