The 1812 Overture is routinely incorporated into July 4th celebrations and fireworks displays.
While many Americans have come to associate the music with Independence Day, NPR notes:
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote his piece The Year 1812, Festival Overture in E flat major in commemoration of the Russian Army's successful defense of Moscow against Napoleon's advancing troops at the Battle of Borodino.
