    Cool July 2nd is actually our Independence Day


    How much of our history do we really learn in school? Iíve been around 80 years and this is the first I can remember of learning this.
    The Declaration of Independence was approved/signed on July 4th, but it was two days earlier, July 2nd that the Continental Congress passed the Lee Resolution, declaring that we were independent of Britain. This simple resolution was a stirring call to throw off the bonds of tyranny:
    Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.
    That it is expedient forthwith to take the most effectual measures for forming foreign Alliances.
    That a plan of confederation be prepared and transmitted to the respective Colonies for their consideration and approbation.

    John Adams even predicted that July 2 would be the day celebrated all over the United States in the future.

    Documents need to be signed in order to be legal. They were signed July 4 . . .not on the 2nd.
