Hey The 4th of July is a big day in America. . It is the day on which public holidays are celebrated, on which tradition calls for people to go out in under the sun and use the legendary fireworks.

On that day delegates from the thirteen colonies signed in Philadelphia declaration of independence which had previously been approved by the so-called “Committee of Five.” It included John Adams (a member of Massachusetts), Benjamin Franklin (Pennsylvania), Thomas Jefferson (Virginia), Robert R. Livingston (New York), and Roger Sherman (Connecticut). The signatories were two later presidents of the union: Jefferson and Adams.

The proposal was written Jefferson which he did, by letter in less than 17 days. Finally, after some changes proposed by his colleagues, he submitted it to the Continental Congress, which signed it on the day of independence of the United States.
