Good Old Wikipedia and its in depth treatment of Independence Day now only 2 days away!:
First, lets recall that many modern countries have an Independence Day they too are proud of : )
Let us recall that Independence for the US was largely the result of an intransigent country ruled by a mad king called George who thought that taxing a people excessively without truly representing their interests was not so much a Good Idea as the result of imperialist arrogance and yes, Lunacy.
More Trivia: the so called United Kingdom itself was only 60 years old when this happened.
Its long contentions with peoples north of its borders and on the Continent of Europe had waned, leaving excess power and resources to squander in its new colonies. Basically, Britain squandered the dividends of its new found peace. Any parallels there? : )
PS:How many soldiers did Britain send? And does Britain have a fourth of July?
