  1. "The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."  — John Adams, 1776

      “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.”

      On July 2, 1776 the resolution was approved by 12 of the 13 colonies, with New York delegates abstaining. Be it noted however, one week later the New York Provincial Congress offered its support for independence, effectively making it unanimous!

      Here here! I'm all for not only celebrating the resolution, declaration, but also the signing of the document itself!

      On the 4th we are actually celebrating not just independence but the Declaration of Independence.

      Where my family lives we celebrate July 4 and then we celebrate 'Heritage Day', the day the Declaration was brought here and was signed. Would be so great to make the holiday a festival across a number of days!
