independence day!

happy independence day!

here's a little history! it was July 2, 1776, that the Second Continental Congress while meeting in Philadelphia voted to approve a resolution for independence from Britain but, there were edits and they needed to draft a document explaining the details to the public.

Once the Congress approved the Declaration on Independence document on July 4, the printer John Dunlap printed about 200 copies. Today 26 copies remain.

This is why the Declaration has the words, “IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776,” at the top, because that is the day the last version was signed in Philadelphia. (via https://constitutioncenter.org)

HAPPY JULY 4TH!
