A History of American Eating Habits
A Step Back in Time
On July 4, 1776, nobody in the newly independent country was eating hamburgers or hot dogs or ketchup.
Ketchup didn't enter the cuisine until the 1800s, and the hamburgers and hot dogs on buns only got popularized around the turn of the last century.
Independence Day was marked quite differently in 1776 from the way it is today.
