Congress voted to draft the Declaration of Independence on July 2nd, 1776 they asked Thomas Jefferson to write the document. It was revised, approved and signed 2 days later on July 4th. At the time, there was some debate about whether July 2nd or the 4th would be considered the anniversary of American independence.

To observe the anniversary a 13 shot salute was fired twice on July 4th, 1977 in Bristol, Rhode Island. Other cities and towns began to celebrate the holiday with meals, parades, music, and fireworks. Independence Day was declared a federal paid holiday in 1938.

Jefferson and Declaration signer John Adams both died exactly 50 years later on July 4, 1926. James Monroe, another signer, and former President passed away on July 4th, 1931. Future President Calvin Coolidge was born on July 4th, 1872.

We celebrate the foresight of the forefathers that crafted the Declaration of Independence.  We hope you enjoy the coming holiday.
