Burgers and Fireworks: It’s (almost) the Fourth of July Independence Day is almost here! Did you know the Declaration of Independence wasn't signed or written on the fourth? We'll clear up some common history myths. For many Americans, the day will include grilling out, but what's the best way to grill a burger? And it's not Independence Day without fireworks. We'll talk about how fireworks are made, and safety over the holiday weekend.
