What Really Happened on July 4, 1776?
Let’s fast forward to a meeting of the Continental Congress in Philadelphia in June 1776. Richard Henry Lee, a Virginia statesman, offered a resolution for the colonies to proclaim independence from the United Kingdom. The Declaration of Independence was drafted by a committee created to produce an official declaration of independence. Lee’s motion for independence was passed on July 2, 1776. The Declaration of Independence was officially adopted two days later, on July 4, 1776, and America became a free nation. Following its declaration of independence, the United States continued to battle in the Revolutionary War, eventually defeating Britain in September 1783.
