Happy Fourth of July!
On July 2, 1776 the thirteen colonies separated from Great Britain by vote of the Second Continental Congress during the American Revolution. It was left primarily to Thomas Jefferson to write a document explaining the colonies’ decision, and that document was the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration of Independence was approved and adopted on July 4, 1776. This year we recognize the 238th Independence Day. Enjoy this national holiday and remember it as the day America declared its freedom for all the world to see.
