Happy July 2nd!!! The Real Date? Perhaps Aug 2nd, Sep 3rd or Jan 14?

Happy 2nd of July. We actually declared independence from Great Britain on the second. The notice was printed and posted on the 4th. The printers dated the notice July 4. The declaration was signed on the fourth by John Hancock and Charles Thomson to make it legal so it could be printed. The actual signing began on 2 Aug and the last delegate signed it in January 1777. Our independence was achieved 3 Sep 1783 with the Treaty of Paris (1783) but not ratified until 14 January 1784. Which date should be our true date of celebration? Certainly not the Fourth.

Fourth of July Myths Debunked:

http://on.natgeo.com/lIXT3W via @NatGeo as i said, next year we need to celebrate on the 2nd. But declaration was signed on fourth by John Hancock and Charles Thomson to make it legal so it could be printed. Our independence was achieved 3 Sep 1783. That should be our true date of celebration. Just because you declare doesn’t mean you will succeed.
