Here are 2 hot publications for your Independence Day consideration.

The first is a great article from The Public Domain Review showing representations of fireworks from past centuries.

The next is a 1785 manuscript showing how to build fireworks. It can be read online or downloaded as a PDF.

Both were fun reads in anticipation of the displays of patriotism scheduled for the day.
