John Adams Declares July 2 as America's Birthday

In a letter to his wife Abigail, John Adams wrote: "The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America."

Adams' prediction came as the result of Richard Henry Lee's motion for independence being approved by the Congress on July 2, 1776. It was Lee's motion that officially separated the thirteen American colonies from Great Britain.

A confident and euphoric Adams declared:

"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 Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."

Adams would be two days off from his prediction, however. On July 4, the day after writing Abigail, Adams joined with the rest of his colleagues in approving the Declaration of Independence, a document that eloquently articulated the reasons why the colonies had separated from the British Empire.

It was this vote - the one on July 4 - that would go down in history as a "memorable Epocha."

  1. That makes me laugh! I recently read a curious fact that the Declaration of Independence wasn't signed until August 2. Interesting bit of trivia!

  7. FOR RECOVERY LOST FUNDS FROM SCAMMER / CRYPTOCURRENCY, RECOVERY OF STOLEN BITCOIN, Please everyone should be careful and stop being deceived by all these brokers and account managers, they scammed me over $50,000 of my investment capital, they kept on requesting for extra funds before a withdrawal request can be accepted and processed, in the end, I lost all my money. All efforts to reach out to their customer support desk had declined, I found it very hard to move on. God so kind I followed a broadcast that teaches on how scammed victims can recover their fund, I contacted the email provided for consultation, I got feedback after some hours and I was asked to provide all legal details concerning my investment, I did exactly what they instructed me to do without delay, to my greatest surprise I was able to recover my money back including my profit which my capital generated. I said I will not hold this to myself but share it to the public so that all scammed victims can get their funds back. Email Address: Email: (wizardcharles1@gmail.com)

  15. Hello everyone, my name is Jill Weaver and I'm going to share with you all how I got scammed after falling victim to a cryptocurrency investment scam, I was introduced to this cryptocurrency scam by a guy I met on Instagram and after investing all my life savings, they swindled me off $960,000. It was the saddest moment of my life because I couldn't believe what had happened, I was bankrupt and my credit was damaged. I reported to the authorities and there was nothing they could do to get these scammers or return my money. I thought all hope was lost and was going into depression until I came across an article online about a hacker who could help me recover my funds, at first I thought it was impossible to do that but I realize I had no other choice but to give it a try, to my surprise Wardrivers Cyber Service was able to recover all my funds and upgrade my credit score, I wanted to put this out there for anyone who might be going through the same situation and have been swindled by this scammers, you can contact Wardrivers Cyber service to help you recover your stolen funds.
