Today In History; American Colonies Declare Independence From England

1776: Americans celebrate their national birthday on July 4th, commemorating their Declaration of Independence from the British in 1776, even though the actual signing of the document didn't happen until about a month later. Most the states’ representatives signed the Declaration on August 2, and several signatures came even later. The state of New York never signed at all.

Happy Fourth of July!!
