Synopsis

Independence Days by Amy Hackney Blackwell

A country's celebration of its independence is vital to its history. Though over time independence days have become focused on parades, performances, and family gatherings, they are essentially days of remembrance, for they mark the beginning of countries' newfound freedom and hope for the future, allowing citizens to create their own sense of identity. Independence Days looks at the various ways that cultures have come to celebrate their countries' independence, including Independence Day in the United States, Emancipation Day in the former British territories, and Bastille Day in France.
