10 Facts About the Declaration of Independence
Every American is familiar with the Fourth of July holiday. It’s a day we all recognize as the pivotal moment we declared our independence from Great Britain, the birth of our country. The Declaration of Independence is the reason we celebrate with barbecues and fireworks but many of us don’t know much else about it, other than it was written by Thomas Jefferson. In the spirit of Independence Day, we’re providing a little history lesson about the Declaration of Independence, along with some interesting facts you can impress everyone with this Fourth of July:
1. John Adams refused to celebrate July 4th as Independence Day
2. The Declaration of Independence wasn’t signed on July 4, 1776

Happy Fourth of July
While no country has a perfect history, the uniqueness of how our country was born 243 years ago has had a lasting impression on the world. However you celebrate this Fourth of July holiday, we hope you take a moment to look around and acknowledge how a single document, the Declaration of Independence, has defined both our past and will continue to shape our future. We’ll leave you with this quote written by Thomas Jefferson in his final letter, which perfectly expresses the purpose of July 4th:
“…For ourselves, let the annual return of this day [July 4] forever refresh our recollections of these rights and an undiminished devotion to them.”
- Thomas Jefferson
