Independence Day honors the birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4 2010, we celebrate America’s 234th birthday. It was on this day back in 1776 that the Declaration of Independence was adopted and signed by our Founding Fathers. The Second Continental Congress had voted and approved part of the Declaration calling for independence twos days early on July 2nd. Thomas Jefferson had written the initial draft that summer in Philadelphia. On June 28th, the Committee of Five, which included Jefferson, John Adams, Ben Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston, presented the draft, where it was debated and became the document we know today. But there was another document which proceeded it, authored by another Founding Father. Without it, we may not be having BBQs, picnics and fireworks today. We might even still all have British passports!
