Did you know these Fun Facts about our Country’s Founding?
🏴 The Second Continental Congress voted for Independence on July 2nd, not July 4th. Independence Day marks the day the Declaration was finalized, formally announced, and sent to printers for publication.
🏴 Scholars have fiercely debated when and how the hand written copy of the Declaration was signed by members of the Continental Congress, but we do know that the Syng inkstand was used during the signing of both the Declaration in 1776 and the Constitution in 1787.
🏴 John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were selected to be members of the Committee of Five who drafted the Declaration. Both would go on to be Presidents of the United States, and both would pass away on the same day – July 4, 1826.
