Tips on finding the right mattress for you

Keep an eye out for these three factors when looking for the ideal mattress: -

Quality

Verify the quality of any mattresses you purchase. By reading the reviews for their products, you can determine whether the seller is well-known or not in this field. Additionally, confirm that the retailer is reputable and inquire if a trial period is available for their mattresses.

Material

These days, mattresses are made of many different materials. The most popular of these include innerspring, latex, hybrid, and memory foam beds. Do a ton of research on these subjects and then decide which one will boost your sleep the best. Also, make sure that you are not allergic to the material you’ve chosen. If you need any assistance, you can always turn to our blog!

Warranty and return policy

You must be able to return the mattress you ordered or, at the very least, have it replaced if it doesn't meet your expectations or doesn't fit your bed frame. Prior to purchasing, find out the company's return and warranty policies. The mattress brand you order from ought to have a 50–100 day return policy and a warranty that lasts at least 10–15 years. Invest in your mattress's future at an early stage.


Turmerry

Turmerry provides you with luxurious latex mattresses, pillows, mattress toppers, and many other items that are sure to make your bedtime the most enjoyable ever.

Each product that we offer you has been cherry-picked from the finest materials that nature has to offer. Our main ingredient, the latex that we use, comes from the sap of rubber trees. The Dunlop technique is used for its processing, which makes it energy-efficient and ensures the integrity of the latex.

Unlike gel memory foam and other types of memory foam mattresses, our organic latex mattress is devoid of any potentially harmful synthetic additives. The cooling and soothing effects of our mattress products do not require the addition of these additives; rather, they are all a result of the organic materials we use.

It is in our DNA to be eco-friendly. GOLS, GOTS, Oeko-Tex, eco-INSTITUT, and LGA are a few environmental organizations that have endorsed us.

With the help of two nonprofits, American Forests and Trees For The Future, we were able to launch "one order, one tree," a program where a tree is planted for every purchase. Over 24,000 trees have been planted by our team in both Africa and the United States!

Fourth of July: A look into the history behind Independence Day

Independence Day, otherwise referred to by its date - the Fourth of July - is the day in 1776 on which the Second Continental Congress, representing the 13 colonies of British America, adopted the Declaration of Independence and ultimately set forth the creation of the United States of America. It was the day that the Americans unitedly sought to gain independence from the British Monarchy and, under the banner of “all men are created equal,” fought for liberty.

Fourth of July is a federal holiday in the US, and ever since its initial creation in 1776, it has been celebrated annually on July 4th. As the country's national day, it is observed with a variety of public and private events honoring the nation's history and traditions. These events include fireworks displays, parades, barbecues, picnics, concerts, family reunions, and political speeches.

What is the significance of Independence Day?

Independence Day represents something that is very dear to us - the idea of freedom. Born into this world, we expect to be free of shackles. When those who come before us do not let us pluck at the liberties of life, we fight to reclaim what should’ve been our birthright.

The Fourth of July celebration evolved into a patriotic tradition that many groups—not just political parties—sought to claim as American society grew and became more diverse. It embodies the essence of our values and the very foundation of who we are as Americans, and it continues to be a potent representation of American strength and distinctive characteristics.

In addition to commemorating the founding of a new, free country, the holiday is significant because it highlights the importance of the Declaration of Independence. As rightfully said by Abraham Lincoln, the declaration was "a rebuke and a stumbling-block to tyranny and oppression."

The Declaration of Independence is a document that defines what it means to be an American. The notion that "all men are created equal" has given us the confidence to forge our own paths, individually and collectively. Americans have bravely resisted numerous forms of tyranny and oppression, ultimately forming the narrative that liberty always triumphs.

Finding North America

When Spain, Portugal, and France began leaking word about the riches they’d found in the pockets of the indigenous North American folk, it was inevitable that someone else would join the party sooner or later. Almost an entire century after Spain’s colonization of America, Britain entered the fray. Newfoundland and Roanoke were targeted first, though they proved to be unsuccessful endeavors.

Sponsored by common stock companies and funded by wealthy men who sought a piece of the plunder, King James I, in 1606, issued a charter in order to discover the riches at Jamestown, Virginia. It would be their first permanent settlement.

When Western Christendom broke down due to the Reformation of the 16th century, it resulted in new religious sects popping up. Because their formation led to many questioning the Church of England, the pillar of “true religion” at the time, they were often persecuted by the state. The manifestation of this persecution would be the Puritan movement and the Pilgrims, who, with the help of the Plymouth Council for New England, sought independence from the Church and its catholic rites.

The Pilgrims would journey across the Atlantic in the Mayflower, landing on Plymouth Rock in November of 1620, forming the Plymouth Colony. About fifty of the 100 colonists perished during the first, brutally harsh winter. Thankfully, in 1621, they were able to strike an alliance with a nearby tribe, who helped them with agriculture and trade. 

Around 20,000 Puritans eventually migrated to “New England” between 1629 and 1642 due to waves of repression, where they established multiple colonies.

The Inception of the Thirteen Colonies

The first colonies (New England)

Around 20,000 Puritans eventually migrated to “New England” between 1629 and 1642 due to waves of repression. Those people established the Massachusetts Bay Colony and set up John Winthrop, the man who led the Puritans to New England, as its first governor. Just as in Virginia, democracy was established in Massachusetts, too, largely as a result of a cry for representation. 

Roger Williams was a Puritan skeptic who spoke out early on. He established Providence in 1636, which later developed into the colony of Rhode Island. Another Massachusetts-based group made its way to the Connecticut River in the same year. The village of Hartford and the colony of Connecticut were subsequently formed and governed by them.

Sir Ferdinando Gorges and John Mason were given permission by the king in 1622 to establish themselves further north. The land was later split between the two men. Mason handled the New Hampshire portion, while Gorges handled the Maine section. Villages and farms grew in these lands thanks to the migration of people from Massachusetts. It was in 1679 that New Hampshire became its own colony. Maine, however, did not become one.

The middle colonies

After two attempts to reach North America in 1607 and 1608, Henry Hudson set sail for America once more in 1609, but this time on behalf of the Dutch. As he stumbled upon New Netherland (part of New York Metropolitan today), the Dutch promptly began colonizing it. In 1625, New Amsterdam on Manhattan Island was designated as the capital of New Netherland.

Swedish settlers entered the Delaware River in 1638. In honor of the Swedish monarch, they constructed Fort Christina. But this colony only flourished for a short while as the Dutch soldiers seized the Swedish settlements in 1655.

The English would later take over New Amsterdam and force the Dutch governor to lower their authority. In honor of the Duke of York (the king’s brother), New Netherland was changed to New York. As people migrated from the east, the area of New Jersey expanded. New York soon developed into a significant seaport. 

In 1681, Pennsylvania was established by William Penn. Penn had converted to Quakerism after leaving the Church of England. The colony was established on the basis that people could be independent in the way they wished to worship and govern. Penn received a second grant of land in the southern part of Pennsylvania in 1682. Delaware was founded as a result.

The Southern Colonies

An English politician and colonial administrator, George Calvert was the first Baron Baltimore. More significantly, though, he was a Roman Catholic. For all Christians, including Catholics, he intended to construct a colony. So when, in 1632, King Charles I granted him land north of Virginia, he accepted it without haste. Two hundred settlers thus landed in Maryland in 1634. From the Indians, they purchased land. Large farms, known as plantations, were constructed.

Virginian settlers had been making their way south during this time. They farmed in the forest clearings, hunted, fished, and raised livestock to survive. The King of England gave this region the name Carolina in 1663. Later, it was split into two separate colonies. South Carolina was established in 1721, and North Carolina in 1729.

South Carolina prospered as Charles Towne (now Charleston) took on the mantle of becoming the best seaport in the South. Immigration saw an uptick, rice plantations were being established, and slaves were used for labor. Slavery was becoming a powerful force in the South, especially since Maryland and Virginia were also into it.

James Oglethorpe laid the groundwork for Georgia, the last of the 13 colonies. First, he procured a land grant between Florida (a Spanish colony) and South Carolina. For settlers, he chose the many debtors incarcerated for owing money. They were poor but honorable, he believed, and in 1733, he set forth with a group of debtors and settled at a place called Savannah (later to become a flourishing seaport).

By now, it has become clear that the path toward the United States of America was slowly forming under the thriving colonies. But in the meantime, it was the flag of England that governed the colonies of North America.

Life in the Colonies

The colonies and the settlers had great freedom at the start. Up until 1760, Parliament in England only sought to change about 100 military and economic laws for the colonies. The English common law may have been the norm, but the sense of political freedom was refreshing to the colonists.

Although the monarch, after 1690, required the colonial assemblies to send their acts to England for approval, this was not a significant burden for the colonists. The expansion of colonial territory, the setting of boundaries, and the preservation of commercial interests were the imperial government's main concerns as the 18th century went on.

Besides politics, the acceptance of religious freedom was much greater in British America than in the majority of other countries during the 18th century. The influence of Roger Williams and William Penn was felt far and wide. Jews, Huguenots, Mennonites, Dunkards, Presbyterians, and Roman Catholics were all welcomed to different colonies by England. The expanding range of faiths largely contributed to the sustenance of religious freedom back then.

Freedom of speech and freedom of the press were readily available to every colony. Newspapers and pamphlets soon spread through the region, and by 1765, almost every colony had at least one local newspaper. The numerous liberties granted to the colonies only increased their resolve to maintain them over time. If a nation were to be created from them, it would value freedom above all else.

The Desire for Independence is Sparked

The colonies are taxed

After the French and Indian War, Britain saw a humungous hole in its pockets. The war had cost them quite a lot of resources and money, and they needed to recuperate these losses somehow. So, in 1763, they began levying new taxes on the American colonies.

The Sugar Act of 1764 imposed taxes on all imported molasses and refined sugar from the non-British Caribbean. The Stamp Act of 1765, which required a stamp to be placed on all legal documents and printed materials and could only be obtained by paying tax, was the British government's next attempt to levy a direct tax on the colonists. 

Already existing tensions grew with each new tax proposed. As a form of protest against the stamp tax, colonists burned the stamps, refused to have their documents stamped, and made threats against the stamp sellers. 

Resistance heightens

The Townshend Acts, passed in 1767, suspended the colonies' right to form assemblies if they weren’t willing to cooperate on the revenue front. Of course, there would be resistance once again by the colonists. Violent protests, hostile environments, and duty evasions all led to Britain sending more soldiers to America.

In the midst of tense interactions between civilians and soldiers, a mob gathered around a British sentry and abused him verbally. Seven more soldiers were brought in to help him. Finally, one of the soldiers opened fire, which caused the others to follow suit. Three people were killed by gunfire instantly, while eight others were injured, two of whom later perished from their wounds. This was the Boston Massacre of 1770. The British soldiers were acquitted of their crimes, and their sentences were reduced.

The Tea Act of 1773 was subsequently enacted by Great Britain. The act gave the East India Company the freedom to commission agents who would have the exclusive right to sell tea in the colonies, as well as the freedom to ship its tea directly to the colonies without first landing it in England. As a result, the colonists would be subject to the Townshend tax; additionally, this would lessen the EIC's financial burden and allow it to sell tea for a lower price.

The tea tax infuriated the colonists in America. They thought the Tea Act was a ruse to win their support for the tax already in place, thereby legalizing the unfair tax imposed by Britain. Colonial merchants' profits were also hurt by the British East India Company's agents selling tea directly to the American colonies. 

Anger was sparked when colonists in Boston dressed as Mohawk North American Indians boarded ships and dumped British East India Company tea into Boston Harbor in December 1773. The incident, named the Boston Tea Party, was a form of protest against taxation without representation in the British Parliament. The British East India Company estimated the damage to the property at £9,659, which is roughly $1,700,000 in modern currency. The damage included the destruction of 92,000 pounds (340 chests) of tea.

The Intolerable Acts

Britain was not willing to tolerate the insubordinate actions of her colonies anymore. A number of harsh laws were passed following the Boston Tea Party in 1774. The "Intolerable Acts" punished Massachusetts colonists for defiantly opposing the Tea Act and were intended to deter other colonies from insurrection. 

In accordance with the Boston Port Act, the port was shut down until the colonists made restitution for the destroyed tea, and the king was satisfied that peace had been restored.

Because the Massachusetts Government Act unilaterally revoked the state's charter and placed it under British rule, it sparked even more outrage than the Port Act. The Government Act mandated that the governor, Parliament, or king appoint candidates for nearly all positions in the colonial government.

According to the Administration of Justice Act, if a fair trial in Massachusetts seemed unlikely, royal officials accused of crimes against colonists could be tried in other parts of the British Empire. Because George Washington thought it permitted British officials to harass Americans and then evade justice, he dubbed it the "Murder Act." Because British soldiers had received a fair trial in the wake of the Boston Massacre in 1770, many colonists thought the act was unnecessary.

The Quartering Act, which was implemented across all British colonies in North America, aimed to improve the way that British troops were housed. The colonial legislatures had previously refused to comply with a requirement that the colonies provide housing for soldiers. In the absence of adequate quarters, the new Quartering Act permitted a governor to house soldiers in other structures.

The first Continental Congress is Established

Delegates from 12 of the 13 British colonies came together for the First Continental Congress. It held meetings at Carpenters' Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from September 5 to October 26, 1774. The delegates engaged in lively debates about how the colonies could collectively react to the British government's coercive actions during the first few weeks.

The Continental Association, which demanded a boycott of British goods to begin in December 1774, was passed and ratified by the First Continental Congress in place of a declaration of independence.

The American Revolution

The Prelude to war

In February 1775, the British garrison in Massachusetts received orders to disarm the rebels and capture their leaders after Massachusetts was declared to be in a state of rebellion. On April 19, 1775, at Lexington and Concord, local Patriot militia engaged British regulars sent to seize a cache of military supplies, sparking open combat. The newly formed Continental Army and Patriot militia then besieged British forces in Boston on land, forcing the British to withdraw to sea.

The opening shot of the battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775, which started the American Revolutionary War, is referred to as "The Shot Heard 'Round the World".

The Patriots besieged Boston, drove royal representatives out of every colony, and established Provincial Congresses to seize power. June 17, 1775, saw the start of the Battle of Bunker Hill. In its end, the Americans suffered 500 casualties, while the British, who won the battle, suffered about 1,000.

The Declaration of Independence

When the American Revolution started in April 1775, the majority of colonists were not agitating for independence. Most of them merely desired more autonomy within the boundaries of the British Empire. However, Britain had less sympathy for the colonies. More ships and soldiers were dispatched. In conflicts and battles, numerous colonists perished. Economic turbulence was also brought on by the war. As the war dragged on, the colonists grew more and more in favor of independence from British rule.

Thomas Paine released the booklet Common Sense in January 1776. It was revolutionary and exposed how the king was mistreating the colonists. The booklet was widely distributed, and independence was picking up support by the day.

On the 7th of June that year, Richard Henry Lee urged the Continental Congress to consider breaking away from the United Kingdom. A five-person committee was chosen by the Congress to draft the official declaration. The original draft was authored by Thomas Jefferson. Others on the committee, including John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert R. Livingston, made a few changes and recommendations.

John Locke, an English philosopher, had outlined his political theories in his book On Civil Government, which Jefferson heavily referenced in his writing of the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration of Independence was introduced by proclaiming a set of universal natural rights and the duty of the state to uphold them. The list of reasons the colonists wanted independence was based on specific ways King George III had violated their rights.

There are three fundamental ideas in the Declaration of Independence: 

  1. All men were created equal and endowed with the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by God. 

  2. Upholding these rights is the primary responsibility of the government. 

  3. If a government tries to deny these rights, the populace is free to rise up and establish a new one.

The Second Continental Congress approved the concept of independence on July 2. The following two days were spent in discussion about the Declaration's content. Representatives from 12 states endorsed the Declaration of Independence. On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress formally passed the Declaration of Independence. The announcement that 13 British colonies in North America would be leaving Great Britain was made in the document.

Since France had demanded that the colonies secede from Britain, the Declaration also helped win France's support. However, the process of total separation had just begun, and success there would necessitate the use of force. There was no going back once the Declaration was passed. Newspapers across the colonies published and read aloud the Declaration to throngs of people in each town.

The war raged on

In the summer of 1776, the British took control of New York City and its harbor. After the Continental Army defeated the British army at the Battle of Saratoga in October 1777, France joined the conflict as an ally of the United States.

The British Royal Navy blockaded ports and kept New York City, as well as other cities, under siege throughout the war. But they were still unable to defeat the forces of George Washington.

The southern states were the focus of the British strategy in America at this time. With fewer regular troops available, the British commanders believed the southern strategy to be a more workable strategy. The south was viewed as heavily Loyalist, with a majority of recent immigrants and a large number of slaves who might be tempted to run away from their masters to join the British and gain their freedom.

The British seized Savannah and established control over Georgia's coastline beginning in late December 1778. With a new invasion in 1780, they also captured Charleston. Royal forces soon had control over the majority of Georgia and South Carolina as a result of the significant victory they achieved at the Battle of Camden. In an effort to convince the Loyalists to support their cause, the British erected a network of forts inland. 

However, not enough Loyalists showed up, so the British were forced to advance into North Carolina and Virginia with a severely depleted army. Behind them, much of the territory they had already taken over had disintegrated into a chaotic guerrilla conflict. It was largely fought by Loyalist and American militia groups, negating many of the British army's earlier victories.

The Seige of Yorktown

In anticipation of being saved by a British fleet, Lord Cornwallis' British army advanced to Yorktown, Virginia. The fleet did show up, but so did a bigger French fleet. After the French won the Battle of the Chesapeake, Cornwallis was stranded when the British fleet turned around and headed back to New York for reinforcements.

In the fall of 1781, Cornwallis' army was finally defeated at Yorktown by an alliance of American and French forces, effectively bringing an end to the conflict. On September 3, 1783, the conflict was officially ended by the signing of the Treaty of Paris, which also established the new country's complete independence from the British Empire.

American independence and the end of British mercantilism in the country were among the important outcomes of the revolution, which allowed the United States to resume trade with Britain and other nations around the world. The majority of Loyalists remained in the United States, though about 60,000 moved to other British territories, especially Canada.

The weak Confederation of the time of war was quickly replaced by the United States Constitution, which the Americans quickly adopted. This led to the creation of a relatively strong federal republican national government.

How is the Fourth of July Observed in the US?

On the year-anniversary of independence, in 1777, a sizable Fourth of July celebration was held. According to the Library of Congress, Philadelphia experienced "a spontaneous celebration."

Fireworks were set off, bonfires were built, candles were lit in windows, and people shouted joyously in the avenues. There was music for the occasion. Booms and gunsmoke filled the air as artillery fire erupted from brightly painted ships on the Delaware River.

Fireworks are one of the Fourth of July celebrations' most recognizable traditions today. For a number of reasons, barbecues are a July 4th tradition as well. One reason is that grilling meat outside over an open flame has long been a celebration staple, much like lighting off fireworks. It works well for feeding a big group of people. Additionally, because meat is typically more expensive than other foods, it is regarded as a sign of prosperity.
