The first anniversary of the Declaration, as it described the scene in Philadelphia: “The 4th of July was celebrated with joy and festivity, fine performances, a number of toasts, followed by a discharge of artillery and small arms. At night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks and the city was beautifully illuminated.” This newspaper article from Philadelphia in 1777 went on to say: “Thus may that glorious and memorable day be celebrated through America by the sons of freedom, from age to age till time shall be no more.” Paraphrased from this article
