50 Facts about the Declaration of Independence: https://www.landofthebrave.info/declaration-of-independence-facts.htm

-It could be argued that “Independence Day” should be July 2nd, 1776.  

-It was on July 2nd 1776 that our “Continental Congress” voted in favor of independence.

-On July 4th it was officially adopted and published in local papers.  Only our president of congress, John Hancock and secretary, Charles Thompson had signed the declaration on the 4th of July 1776.

-John Adams, later to be our president, thought July 2nd should be our day of independence.

To reminisce just a bit:  When I was growing up in Kansas, I loved sparklers.  My sisters and I had so much fun running around on the five acre backyard property of my Aunt Mary and Uncle’s Bill’s home.  Kansas has thunderstorms all summer long so no one worried about fires.  We also shot off bottle rockets with my cousins, Mike, Rick, Tim, Larry Mike, Kevin and Grant. Great memories!

From my family to yours, Have a wonderful 4th of July!
