Photographer's Note

The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.

During my stay in Madison, I noticed this interesting map of the United States made of license plates. Each state has a differently designed plates in different colors and making a map of the country from them look very attractive, colorful and nice. So all 50 states from the map will be celebrating the 244th Independence Day our beloved country on July 4, 2020..
