Fourth of July! It is a day, in the United States, in a manner described to the Goddess of Gunpowder. Ælius, in the classic fable, dedicated one day in the week to burn incense to the memory of Jupiter, and the patriotic, liberty-loving citizens of the United States set aside this day of every year to explode gunpowder by way of commemoration of the Declaration of Independence—the spirit of which document is still cherished with characteristic national fervor.

Shops are shut, tradesmen suspend business, and even bankers and usurers seem to agree that toil shall have a gala-day…. The rich and the poor alike make merry. ~Henry Howard Paul, “Fourth of July in the United States,” 1851
