The Glorious Fourth - Or, Glorious Second? Or Eighth?
Smelser, Marshall
Hist Teacher, 3, 2, 25-30, 70 Jan
July 2 was the day that the Continental Congress voted for American independence, and July 8 was the day that independence was officially proclaimed. For this reason, July 4, the day that John Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence, seems to be the least logical choice for Independence Day. (CK)
