Patriotic Pork

A key staple food for Washington’s troops at Valley Forge

Salt pork from New Jersey was shipped behind British lines to Valley Forge to feed the hungry Continental Army in the winter of 1776-77.

How "Uncle Sam" came to represent the U.S. Government

During the War of 1812, a Troy, New York, pork packer named Uncle Sam Wilson shipped a boatload of several hundred barrels of pork to U.S. troops. Because each barrel was stamped "U.S." on the docks, it quickly became bantered that the "U.S." stood for "Uncle Sam," whose large pork shipment looked to be enough to feed the entire army.

Fourth of July

The first organized celebration of the Fourth of July was held in Philadelphia on July 4, 1777. The first public readings of the Declaration of Independence were held in Philadelphia's Independence Square on July 8, 1776. The first big 4th of July party took place on the one-year anniversary of independence in 1777.

The Fourth of July celebrates the passage of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. The Declaration announced the political separation of the 13 North American colonies from Great Britain.

In 1870, Congress passed H.R. 2224, establishing the Fourth of July as an unpaid federal holiday. President Ulysses S. Grant signed into law the Holidays Act. This law designated July 4th as a national holiday to be observed as Independence Day. However, it's worth noting that even before it became a federal holiday, the Fourth of July had been widely celebrated and recognized as an important date in American history. The federal recognition solidified its status as an official holiday and established it as a day of national significance.

Suggestions for Patriotic Business Names

Incorporating patriotism into your business name or tagline can not only showcase your love for our country but also resonate with customers who appreciate your shared values. Whether you draw inspiration from history, national symbols, or cultural diversity, infusing your business with patriotism creates a strong sense of identity and can help forge meaningful connections with your target audience. So, let your entrepreneurial spirit soar and embark on your business journey with a name or tagline that proudly represents your patriotism.


Incorporate historical references or symbols that represent our country's heritage. For example, you could consider naming your business after a significant event, a founding father, or an iconic landmark. A tagline like "Embrace the Legacy" or "Preserving our Nation's Founding" can also emphasize your commitment to honoring our country's history.

National Values:

Highlight the core values your country stands for and infuse them into your business name or tagline. Consider using words like freedom, equality, justice, or unity. For instance, a clothing store could be named "Liberty Apparel" or a tagline such as "Fashion for All."

Incorporate national symbols into your business logo. These could include the flag, bald eagle, or any iconic symbol that represents our country. For example, a landscaping business could be named "Eagle's Wings Outdoor Design" or a tagline like "Soaring to New Heights in Landscaping Excellence."

Service to the Nation:

Highlight your commitment to serving the community or supporting national causes. A business name like "Patriot Plumbing" or a tagline such as "Building Homes, Supporting Veterans" can emphasize your dedication to both customers and our country.

Cultural Celebration:

Celebrate the diversity and cultural heritage of our country by incorporating elements into your business name or tagline. For example, a restaurant could be named "Taste of the Melting Pot" or a tagline like "Culinary Fusion, Reflecting the Best of America."

All-American Slogans:

Infuse your business tagline with catchy phrases that embody the spirit of patriotism. Consider using words like "star-spangled," "red, white, and blue," or "American dream."
