1. It wasn't actually July 4

The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence did not sign at the same time, nor did they sign on July 4, 1776.

Wow! Great facts. How interesting that Jefferson and Adams died on Independence day. Crazy!

I thought that was interesting too, as well as the fact that it wasn't a holiday until 1941.
