Photo Highlights: AmCham’s Independence Day Picnic 2011

Join AmCham members, friends and family to enjoy our traditional American holiday and cultural event that is celebrated all across the USA, in big cities and small towns.

America’s Independence Day celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence, on July 4, 1776. It was a unanimous Declaration of the thirteen “United States of America.” We invite you to read a transcription of the complete text of the Declaration of Independence. By the way, did you know that the American Declaration of Independence was one of the sources for Vietnam’s Declaration of Independence by President Ho Chi Minh in Hanoi on National Foundation Day, 2 Sep 1945?
