  • The Declaration of Independence wasn’t signed on July 4th. The Continental Congress adopted it on the 4th, but the signing didn’t occur until August 2nd.
  • The original draft of the declaration had an anti-slavery passage. Jefferson included a passage condemning the slave trade, but it was ultimately rejected by delegates from southern states.
  • Exactly 50 years after the declaration was signed, two U.S. Presidents, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died on July 4th in 1826.
