The re-enactments usually do not include killing local British nationals. Human 22:17, 29 April 2007 (EDT)

The reversion was to remove a redundancy.--Aschlafly 10:38, 6 January 2008 (EST)

OK, I am genuinely unclear on this, it is not a rhetorical question: Is Conservapedia an American wiki? SMI 15:03, 6 January 2008 (EST)
Look at our logo. It has an American flag. Even if it weren't, Andy's right: it's redundant to say "the American celebration of American independence". HelpJazz 16:11, 10 January 2008 (EST)
Fair enough. SMI 11:35, 13 January 2008 (EST)

Blacks

While should be able to give a note that, you besmirch the day with a paragraph devoted to it.--Jpatt 21:30, 2 July 2009 (EDT)

it's now a celebration of freedom for ALL Americans and what it means to a group that did not have freedom until 1865 is an important insight. RJJensen 21:44, 2 July 2009 (EDT)
I guess, if you want the world to know how July 4th wasn't special, hypocrisy of America's ideals. Plus, how southern whites were not happy with black celebrating. How Jefferson was hated. Nothing smacks of patriotism there RJJensen.--Jpatt 22:03, 2 July 2009 (EDT)
I think southerners were not so much anti-black as anti-Yankee; but they got over it. I don't think Jefferson was hated but ignored in the North before 1824, an issue Daniel Webster helped resolve. Yes, let the world know what happened--they already know about slavery but they need to know how we handled the issue; it makes for a rich history. RJJensen 22:06, 2 July 2009 (EDT)

Thank you Conservapedians

Thank you everyone who contributed to this page. It went from a measly three paragraphs to a wonderful page in a short period of time. I am very proud how this special day is now fully recognized for all American loving people to enjoy. --Jpatt 14:15, 3 July 2009 (EDT)

Thank you, Jpatt! One thought, however: are you content with calling the page the "Fourth of July" rather than "Independence Day"? I'm curious what you and others think about the naming.--Andy Schlafly 09:11, 4 July 2009 (EDT)
I am not sure how to do it well, so I just did a part. Please finish the changes. --Joaquín Martínez 10:34, 4 July 2009 (EDT)
