HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO ALL OUR FRIENDS IN THE US

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO ALL OUR FRIENDS IN THE US

Vancouver, BC July 4, 2019

After celebrating Canada Day last Monday in Canada, we sincerely congratulate our direct neighbours in the USA on their Independence Day. 

Today we have put together a few information on the origins of American culture and their independence. Among the cultural peculiarities in the US is the pronounced national pride of many Americans.

The beginning of US history is often equated with the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus in 1492.

However, thousands of years ago, Native Americans lived in today's United States of America. Also, the Vikings are said to have discovered the American continent some 500 years before Columbus. Regardless of where the origins of American culture lie, the discovery voyages of Columbus marked the beginning of European conquest of the American continent, marking the beginning of the era of colonialism.

Due to the ever-increasing number of colonies, conflicts between the European powers were inevitable. After the end of the French and Indian War (1754-1763) between England and France and Spain, a large part of the colonies was in English hands. The colonies, however, increasingly sought economic independence. Increasing tensions were also caused by the attempt of the British crown, the settlers by the introduction of tariffs and taxes to participate in the war debt. As a key event that initiated the American Revolutionary War, the so-called Boston Tea Party in December 1773 applies.

During the course of American history, additional articles were passed, leading, for example, to the abolition of slavery (1865) and the introduction of women's suffrage (1920). The right to strive for happiness, the gold rush, and the prospect of religious and political freedom led to millions of people making their way to the US in the 19th and 20th centuries. The development of the United States of America is thus inextricably linked to the immigration history of the country and explains why the country has always been considered an immigration nation.

In the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, the principle of equality and the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" are formulated for the first time. Until today, the 4th of July is the American National Day (Independence Day).

Happy Independence Day from all of us here in Canada
