One of Vermont’s greatest Independence Day celebrations happens at President Calvin Coolidge’s homestead. Calvin Coolidge was born on July 4, 1872 in Plymouth Notch, Vermont. He became the Nation’s 30th president in 1923. He was the only American President born on the fourth of July and his home has become a place of great celebration on the shared birthday of the Nation and one of its leaders. Every year the White House sends a wreath to the homestead. It is presented at the grave of President Coolidge by the Vermont National Guards. The Declaration of Independence is read, speeches are made, tours are given, music and dancing are to be had, a wonderful barbeque takes place, and the day is concluded by a fireworks display.
Hampton Beach is a place of tremendous activity on the nation’s birthday. With activities changing every year, the celebration always holds a surprise.

On July 4, 1776 Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence as a way of officially declaring America as a free country. Since then, America has celebrated the holiday in a variety of ways. The first Independence Day celebration consisted of Philadelphia lighting up the night sky with bonfires and candles, as well as ringing church bells and firing cannons. Though many celebrations around the country have a lot of bravado, Maine still celebrates Independence Day with traditional patriotic style.
