    What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. Also available from Amazon: Hill's Manual Of Social And Business Forms: The How-To-Do-Everything Book Of Victorian America.

    As an ethics-based vegan, July 4th has long been a complicated "holiday" for me. Millions of animals are terrified by fireworks and wildlife are harmed. Can you imagine how scary it must be to suddenly have explosions going off all around you? This is to say nothing about fireworks' contribution to fire danger.   The Fourth of July – also known as Independence Day or July 4th – has been a federal holiday in the United States since The tradition of Independence Day .
