United States will be celebrating its Independence Day on Wednesday, 4th July, 2018. Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of United States, famously said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." Here are some startling facts about United States you might not have known (Source):
