They post firework display celebrations being held in cities across the U.S. If
your city is having a fireworks or Fourth of July celebration or if you know of
an event being held in any U.S. city, please let them know.
Fourth of July
This database was begun in 1995 by James Heintze, Librarian at American
University, Washington, D.C. Its purpose is to bring together in one source
selected examples of Fourth of July celebrations that have occurred throughout
our nation's history from 1776 to 2000. The goal is to capture a slice of the
American cultural tradition--its pageantry, spectacle, music, and symbol--in
the hopes that an examination of these events will add to our understanding of
the American character and heritage.
