The forest was shrinking daily but the trees kept voting for the axe as its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.

Happy Independence Day!
The Declaration of Independence was actually announced on the 2nd July, the signed copies of the declaration were sent out to the other States on the 4th. But don't tell the yanks that. They have as much knowledge of their own history as the have on world geography. A happy belated birthday anyway.

Just to make sure AlexO has the correct info on reason for July 4th celebration and actual final signing date.
"One of the most widely held misconceptions about the Declaration of Independence is that it was signed on July 4, 1776. In fact, independence was formally declared on July 2, 1776, a date that John Adams believed would be “the most memorable epocha in the history of America.” On July 4, 1776, Congress approved the final text of the Declaration. It wasn’t signed until August 2, 1776."
