Happy 4th Of July!

Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans. Today is well–hot dogs, homemade ice cream, fun with family, maybe some swimming and more than likely a few sunburns.

But I thought in the midst of all that, it’d be fun to reflect back a little. (scroll over/highlight to see the answers!)

1.  What is the last line of the last verse of our National Anthem?

A:   O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave (it’s the last line of each verse).

2. How many stars were on the first United States flag?

A: 13 stripes and 13 stars

3. Where was the first national capital located?

A: 1774 Carpenters Hall, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

4: Who do historians believe sewed the first official American flag?

A: Betsy Ross

5: Which two patriots died on July 4, 1826?

A: Thomas Jefferson & John Adams

6: In July 1776, how many people were living in the colonies?

A: 2.5 Million

7: Who was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence?

A: John Hancock.

8: The first Independence Day was July 4, 1776 but in what year was Fourth of July officially declared a national holiday by Congress?

A: 1941.

9: How were fireworks invented?

A: The Chinese invented them much the same way they constructed rockets for war.

10: Finish this phrase from the Declaration: Life, liberty, and _________________________________________?

A: The pursuit of happiness

How did you all do?

Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!

  1. FUN! I got about 1/2! I didn’t know who died and I didn’t know how many people lived in the colonies!

    Happy 4th everybody! Stay saft

  2. Thanks for the fun quiz/fun facts, Keri! Happy Independence Day, everyone!

  3. Cool post! I missed #6, 8, and 9. It helps that I was in Philadelphia two weeks ago and didn’t have to rely on the history lectures I heard a hundred years ago:-) Happy 4th!

  4. I got five and a half. I knew John Adams died but not Thomas Jefferson. Fun quiz, Happy Fourth!!
