Page 2 INDEPENDENCE DAY (continued): • Although Americans celebrate Independence Day on July 4, John Adams originally thought it would be celebrated on the second. Here is what he wrote to his wife on July 3, 1776: “The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God.” • The signing of the Declaration was not completed until August 1776, but the Fourth of July holiday has been accepted as the official anniversary of U.S. independence. It was not declared a federal holiday until 1941. Today, it is celebrated in all states and territories of the United States. • The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence did not sign at the same time. The official event occurred on August 2, 1776, when 50 men signed it. • The first Independence Day celebration took place in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776, four days after the Declaration of Independence was adopted. Some accounts claim that it was The Liberty Bell sounding from the tower of Independence Hall on that day that summoned citizens to gather for the first public reading of the Declaration, which was given by Colonel John Nixon. • Within a few years of that first commemoration, the Fourth of July was observed throughout most of the new nation. • The first two versions of the famous Liberty Bell were defective and had to be recast. The third version rang every Fourth of July from 1778 to 1846, when, according to legend, it cracked as it was being tolled for the celebration of George Washington’s birthday.

INDEPENDENCE (continued):
• In 1778, General George Washington marked the Fourth with a double ration of rum for his soldiers and an artillery salute. Across the sea, ambassadors John Adams and Benjamin Franklin held a dinner for their fellow Americans in Paris, France. • An elaborate Fourth of July celebration was held in Philadelphia in 1788, following the ratification of the Constitution. • The first public Fourth of July event at the White House occurred in 1801. • The first Independence Day celebration west of the Mississippi occurred at Independence Creek, Kansas, and was celebrated by the explorers Lewis and Clark in 1804. • Several important U.S. projects were started on Independence Day. Work on the Erie Canal in New York State began on July 4, 1817. Construction of the first railroad in the United States, the Baltimore and Ohio, was started on July 4, 1828. July 4 was the date selected in 1848 for laying the cornerstone of the Washington Monument. • Two American icons who were instrumental in ensuring the country’s independence passed away on July 4.

Back in 1777, fireworks were certainly not as we know them today. One of the first displays of fireworks was on July 4, 1777, when American patriots placed lit candles on their windowsills to show their love of country. If a windowsill was bare, it was certain that person was loyal to the English crown.

Tidbits Goes Green on July 4: Even though temperatures might be soaring, most Fourth of July parties don’t get exciting until the evening. So take advantage of the cooler evening weather and throw your party outdoors. It’s a great way to enjoy nature and reduce the energy costs of using indoor facilities.
The Fourth of July weekend was approaching, and Miss Pelham, a nursery school teacher, took the opportunity to tell her class about patriotism. “We live in a great country,” she announced. “One of the things we should be happy about is that, in this country, we are all free.” Trevor, who was a little boy in her class, came walking up to her from the back of the room. He stood with his hands on his hips and said loudly, “I’m not free. I’m four.”

FIREWORKS Compared to the big bangs of today, the first fireworks had humble beginnings. They were actually nothing more than green bamboo thrown into fires to scare spirits away in ancient China.

• Believe it or not, in the 1400s, Florence, Italy, was the center of the fireworks industry. At the time, fireworks were just one effect in a celebration rather than its focus. At religious festivals, Italians made plaster figures that spewed fireworks from their eyes and mouths. • Fireworks were originally applied to warfare by attaching them to arrows. The first such use, in 1,200 A.D., involved placing powder into paper tubes attached to the arrows with a fuse or a trail of gunpowder wrapped in tissue paper. • The 1533 coronation parade for Anne Boleyn included a papier-mâché dragon that belched fire. • Fireworks became very popular in Great Britain during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The great William Shakespeare mentions fireworks in his plays, and fireworks were so much enjoyed by the Queen herself that she created a “Fire Master of England.” King James II was so pleased with the fireworks display that celebrated his coronation that he knighted his Fire Master. • The first fireworks recorded in America were set off by an Englishman, Captain John Smith. Smith, of course, gained fame in the story of Pocahontas.

Mid-Year Financial Checkup Summer is a good time to do a mid-year financial checkup. Rather than waiting until the end of the year and discovering that you should have made adjustments, take a look at your finances now and see how you're doing. Taxes: • Did you have to pay taxes on top of what was deducted from your pay in 2009? Or was too much deducted and you received a refund? The key is to do the math and get as close to your actual taxes due and have that amount taken out during the year. • If you've added a baby to your household or if you've bought a house and will have a mortgage interest deduction, you can
benefit from adding a deduction or two to your W-4 form for your employer. And if a child has grown and gone and is no longer a deduction for you, make an adjustment or you'll owe at the end of the year. • If you received a big refund for 2009, that's money you could have used during the year for any number of things, such as extra money to pay down credit cards or putting more cash into savings. Remember: The Internal Revenue Service doesn't pay you interest on the money it borrows from you during the year. • If you have multiple jobs or got married, your taxes will change. If you lost your job and received accumulated vacation or sick pay, that money is taxable. If you then received unemployment benefits, that money also is taxable. While the last thing you want to do the minute you find a new job is increase the amount of money deducted from your new check, it could keep you from owing
taxes next spring. To see if you have the right amount of withholding, check the IRS withholding calculator. Go online to irs.gov and put "withholding calculator" in the search box. More Tips: • Add up your expenses for the year so far. Look at your annual budget and compare all the categories to see if you're on track for savings, credit-card payments, clothing, food and utilities. • If you'd planned to pay down loans faster by sending larger payments for mortgage and auto loans, have you done that? Even starting now would help in the long run. David Uffington regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible.

Page 8 FIREWORKS (continued): • The first Independence Day fireworks celebration was in 1776 and was memorialized by then future President John Adams as follows: “The day (Independence Day) will be the most memorable in the history of America. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, bonfires and illuminations (fireworks) from one end of this continent to the other, from this day forward forevermore.” • During World War II, the first bomb dropped on Tokyo, Japan, was made by a fireworks company in the United States. At that time of national need, most fireworks companies changed to wartime production, as was also the case in World War I and the Civil War. • Fireworks central in the U.S.A.: New Castle, Pennsylvania, home to the nationally recognized display companies Zambelli Fireworks Internationale and Pyrotechnico, proclaims itself to be the “Fireworks capital of America.” Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks of Loveland, Ohio, also began operations in New Castle, before moving its headquarters to the Cincinnati area. • The Zambellis are known as America’s “first family of fireworks.” Antonio Zambelli came to the United States from Italy and established Zambelli Fireworks Manufacturing Company in 1893. • Workers who make firecrackers have to be sure to wear an ensemble that is entirely cotton so that the static electricity generated by their ordinary clothing will not set off the fireworks. • The value of fireworks imported from China represents the bulk of all U.S. fireworks imports (about $217 million). U.S. exports of fireworks, by comparison, amount to $42.9 million, with the United Arab Emirates purchasing more than any other single country ($14.5 million).
