Events in our History 

July 1776 Although Richard Henry Lee of Virginia had proposed a resolution in June, stating that These united Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States: that they are absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown; and that all political Connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be, totally dissolved, the resolution was not voted upon until July 2, 1776.  Whether there were enough votes to pass the resolution remained in doubt until Caesar Rodney, rode up on his horse, and wiping the mud from his face and coat sleeves, walked into the room.  Rodney had ridden all night in the rain from South Carolina in order to arrive at the meeting where his vote was needed to make the decision of the colonies unanimous.  Of this eveningís work John Adams wrote the next day to his wife, Abigail, "The second 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."


4  1776 Beside this great anniversary of our country all other events are pale and we might almost ignore them.

4  1826 John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died on this day, exactly 50 years after they had signed the Declaration of Independence.  Adams thought that Jefferson had out-lived him, as Jefferson thought Adams had out-lived him.
