Happy July 4th!
The Fourth of July commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, which declared that the 13 American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues and many other leisure-time activities. Pictured is America Tower, the 19th-tallest building in Houston. Its rooftop American flag is thought to be among the highest up of its kind in the country.
