PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Nearly 100 people will celebrate Independence Day in New Hampshire by becoming U.S. citizens.

Monday’s ceremony in Portsmouth is among dozens of similar events being held around the country. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services says altogether, more than 7,000 people will become citizens.

New Hampshire’s ceremony will be held at the Strawbery Banke living history museum, which is also marking the holiday with a patriotic parade and a reading of the Declaration of Independence by Gov. Maggie Hassan.
