Allentown July 4th Declaration Reading 2022
Here’s another July 4th event in Allentown, New Jersey.
- As of June 28, 2022, these are the details that have been released about this NJ Fourth of July event.
Reading of the Declaration of Independence
“We hold these truths to be self-evident” – familiar words for any American. To celebrate America’s 246th birthday, town leaders from Allentown and Upper Freehold Township will join members of the community to publicly read the Declaration of Independence once again this July 4th.
The first public reading of the Declaration of Independence was held in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776, and other readings were held later that same day in Trenton, NJ, and Easton, PA. Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776, copies of the document were printed and sent by messengers to be distributed throughout the newly-founded 13 states. At the time, Allentown, NJ was a village frequented by many travelers en route from Philadelphia to New York. It is likely that the Declaration was proclaimed in 1776 from very close to the same site at which it will be read 246 years later on July 4, 2022.
