From the Past: July 4, 1898 — Sonora burns as thousands celebrate

Initially observed in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776, there once was a time when Independence Day was America’s most celebrated holiday. John Adams, our second president, considered the occasion “a momentous time for rejoicing.” We quote: 

“I am apt to believe that Independence Day will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from time forward for evermore.”
