Happy Independence Day!

Fun fact: Congress declared independence for the thirteen colonies on July 2, 1776, but the Declaration of Independence wasn’t approved and signed until July 4, 1776. Now, we celebrate our Independence Day according to the date on the Declaration of Independence instead of when we officially separated from Britain and declared ourselves free.
