Apple pie, baseball and the Fourth of July: It’s hard for one to think of three more stereotypically American things. Have a Bruce Springsteen album playing in the background and you’d have an Americana overload. Come to think of it, if you ever see someone eating apple pie at a baseball game on the Fourth of July listening to Springsteen they’re probably a poorly disguised spy.
The truth is America is constantly changing: We’re a diverse country with large amounts of different nationalities, races and religions that grow larger every decade. Regardless of your lineage or creed, every Fourth of July we celebrate the history of when we achieved our independence as a country, and we do this by grilling various meats, lounging in the sun with friends of family, rounded off with a night of fireworks.
At Quicken Loans, we’re proud to honor our nation’s history. We’re also proud to honor our veterans both past and present that have allowed us to celebrate the Fourth of July every year. So, as we get closer and closer to the most patriotic of holidays, take a moment to read our Fourth of July infographic.
