Happy Independence Day!

07.04.12

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” This, the second line of the United States Declaration of Independence, is considered one of the most well-known sentences in the English Language, but it took the Continental Congress nearly an entire month to draft and ultimately agree upon their intentions for the new nation before fifty-six delegates finally signed off on the document. A moment that occurred on July 4, 1776, marking the United States’ official separation from Great Britain. A day that we celebrate and know now as our Independence Day.
