Celebrating Our Independence - A 4th Of July Infographic

Source: Infographic Journal
With all the violence in the world today and the daily barrage of recent protests in Egypt and Brazil, we should count our stars and stripes that we can go about our routines this 4th of July. To be sure, there will be plenty of barbeques, shopping, and fireworks, but we should take the time to reflect on our freedom and independence.

The infographic “Let Freedom Ring: Celebrating Independence Day” created by Quicken Loans is a proud look at the history of the United States using data from the U.S. Census. One of the things we like most about this particular holiday visualization is the comparison made throughout between 1776 and 2013. It’s also loaded with patriotic facts, from districts with names such as union, freedom, and liberty to who is Uncle Sam.

Of course there’s a little economics regarding the amount spent on red, white, and blue d├ęcor, as well as the total value of imports and exports of fireworks. While we know that school is out for the summer, this infographic would be a nice addition to use in American history or civics classes.

For the time being, let’s just say “Happy 4th of July” and be grateful for all those who serve today to protect our freedoms.
