4th of July Fireworks Shows in Southeast Tennessee
The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Since 1870, when Congress declared July 4 to be a national holiday, we celebrate that document (housed at the National Archives in Washington D.C.) as the birth of American independence.
Good news: Many communities across the Chattanooga region of Southeast Tennessee are still planning 4th of July celebrations and fireworks this year. Here’s what’s in the works:
