This year’s 4th of July will mark 241 years since the Second Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence, a document outlining the American government’s reasoning for separating from the United States. The date of the U.S.’s actual independence has been debated by historians, with many pointing to the Lee Resolution, also approved by the Second Congressional Congress, that legally separated the Thirteen Colonies from the British Empire two days earlier on July 2nd. Others have claimed that the documents were actually not signed until a month later, though several Founding Fathers wrote specifically about signing the Declaration of Independence on the 4th of July.
