HTC News - July 5, 2020

Fireworks and the fourth of July
In fact, the genesis of America’s love affair with fireworks is inextricably linked to its independence. In a letter dated July 3, 1776, American founding father John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail that, on the occasion of Independence Day, the country should be honored “with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

Adams’s words were ultimately put into action just one year and one day later, on July 4, 1777, when the United States’ first commemorative Independence Day skyrockets erupted into the night sky. The Pennsylvania Evening Post wrote that in Philadelphia, “the evening was closed with the ring of bells, and at night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks which began and concluded with 13 rockets [to represent the 13 American colonies] on the Commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated.”

By 1783, the now-traditional fireworks became available to the public, and the Independence Day skies were filled with more explosive color than ever before. Although some states have since banned the sale of fireworks for safety reasons, setting off rockets at home remains a popular pastime in many parts of the country as a way to brightly commemorate America’s independence.
