Two days late, same as every year... Answered

The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

(John Adams)

Well, happy late birthday, Younglings.

I love the keywords. Haha. But also, I can't believe how many Americans don't know that it was signed on the 2nd.

LOL - I though I was the only one who read the keywords on a forum topic!
