On the fourth of July, Americans all over the world celebrate Independence Day - the historic day, in 1776, when the USA gained independence from Great Britain. Each year, this most American of holidays is marked with parades, concerts, firework displays, picnics and the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner and stirring patriotic marches by John Philip de Sousa.
If you believe in coincidences, here's an amazing one. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, two of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia in 1776, both went on to become President of the United States and then both died on 4th July 1826 - exactly 50 years after the adoption of the American Declaration of Independence.
Naturally, the nation's capital, Washington, is one of the places to be on Independence Day, the Capitol and the Monument forming a spectacular backdrop to the day's festivities. Although America's First Pandas are, of course, Chinese citizens, they always celebrate their adoptive country's special day and where better than watching the firework display in front of the Capitol!
