Independence Day Trivia
This morning I Googled "Independence Day'. The first thing to pop up was Find the nearest fireworks display or Independence Day celebration. Not quite what I was looking for. I did, however find a few facts that I thought were interesting - not mind blowing... just a few things that made me go 'hmmmm'.
- The Declaration of Independence was signed on July 2nd, 1976, not on July 4th.
- John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were both Founding Fathers of the United States.
- John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were the only two men that signed the Declaration and became President.
- John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on the 50th anniversary of the United States, July 4th, 1826.
- In 1980, Independence Day was an unpaid holiday for federal employees. It became a paid holiday in 1938.
