Bicentennial Celebration

Designing a Bicentennial Web Site

The 200th anniversary of independence was a cause for celebration for Americans everywhere. President Ford told the nation to "break out the flag, strike up the band, light up the sky." It was a time to reflect on how the nation began, where it was then, and what might happen next. Use the library and the Internet to find information about the celebration. Also make use of what you have learned about the nation's history from your textbook.

  • Choose music that captures the spirit of the celebration.
  • Highlight important events in the nations' history.
