Happy Fourth of July!

I am proudly wearing my United States of America t-shirt in support of all of our American friends who are celebrating Independence Day today!

Many people don't know that it was actually July 2, 1776 that the resolution of independence was signed by congress. But the date on the Declaration of Independence was July 4th, so that became the day of annual celebration. The Declaration of Independence document was written by John Adams, Roger Sherman, Robert Livingston, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson.

Adams and Jefferson would both go on to become President of the United States of America.

In a strange co-incidence, these two men both died on the same day...July 4, 1826...exactly 50 years later.
