1. Our great nation’s true date of independence should actually be considered July 2nd. According to a letter written by John Adams to his Abigail on July 3rd, he notates that July 2nd will go down in history as the day celebrating our independence with parades and bells ringing. Congress ruled in favor of our independence on July 2nd, but it was not officially accepted or recognized until 2 days later on July 4th.
