Happy Fourth of July

Today is the day we celebrate what is almost certainly the first piece of true Americana, the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The drafting, and discussion as to its contents may have finished on the second, but this was the day it was first signed in the paper form. An engrossed copy was also made, but not received and signed until August 2, 1776. For that reason, I will be doing at least one post a week on history surrounding the Declaration of Independence and America's infancy.
