Like India, America has also been a slave of the Britishers. Britishers have done a lot of atrocities on people in America too. As a result, the conflict between the British and the Native Americans gradually increased. After a long struggle, on July 2, 1776, 12 of the 13 American Colonies officially decided to secede from Great Britain and sought independence through a vote by the Continental Congress. Exactly two days later, on July 4, all 13 colonies voted to adopt the Declaration of Independence and declared themselves independent by signing a declaration. Since then America is celebrating its Independence Day.
The 13 colonies made a declaration of independence, which is also known as the ‘Declaration of Independence’. General George Washington became the first President of America after independence. He is known as a freedom fighter who fought for freedom. The capital of America is named after him.
