July 4 is the day the American Colonies in 1776 adopted the Declaration of Independence, formally announcing their separation from Great Britain.

Nearby at another library is one of the very few original copies of the national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.” VOA’s Bernard Shusman reports from New York.
