It should be mentioned that the 4th of July, 1776, was when the USA declared independance; it would not be formally recognised until September 3rd, 1783. User:LeoS Revision as of 14:02, 4 July 2009.
"This is year number 233 of our Independence."
This is not accurate. The 234th year of independence began July 4, 2009.Dadsnagem2 11:53, 24 July 2009 (EDT)
- Thanks for letting us know. However it was such a minor/easy fix, I would assume even a McKinsey associate could do it, eh? --ṬK/Admin/Talk 14:02, 24 July 2009 (EDT)
- I thought of that fix, but thought it might cause confusion.
referred to in secularized language as July 4th or the Fourth of July
I'm confused: in the section Independence_Day#Reagan:_What_July_4th_Means_to_Me, Ronald Reagan is mentioning only the 4th of July, but is never talking about the Independence Day - and he is certainly above the suspicion of having preferred secularized language...
So, Happy 4th of July to all Americans! AugustO 16:23, 4 July 2012 (EDT)
- Perhaps Ronald Reagan would have preferred "Independence Day" to "Fourth of July" if Conservapedia's entry on secularized language had existed then!--Andy Schlafly 00:07, 7 July 2012 (EDT)
This page clearly discusses the U.S. independence day, but the title does not show this. As a result, other pages such as Waitangi Day link here looking for a page on the generic topic. Should it be moved to something like "United States Independence Day" or "Independence Day (U.S.)" or some other such name? --David B (TALK) 10:51, 12 September 2017 (EDT)
