Independence Day honors the United States of America's birthday that was officially founded on July 4, 1776. It is a day of picnics and patriotic parades, a night of concerts and fireworks. The flying of 'Old Glory' ... the U.S. Flag ... is widespread.

While most of the 56 signers (listed below) of the Declaration of Independence voted in favor of independence on July 2, 1776 ... July 4, 1776 is the official date. Then on July 8, 1776 the Continental Congress declared Independence in the Assembly Room of Independence Hall (known as the Pennsylvania State House then) with the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence. And in 1787 the U.S. Constitution was debated and signed.

In fact, the Declaration of Independence was signed at Independence Hall by most of the congressional delegates on August 2, 1776. Most historians also consider this room one of the most historic rooms in the United States. The Assembly Room served as the meeting place of the Pennsylvania Assembly for over sixty years until the State Capital moved away from Philadelphia in 1799.

The 56 Signers of the Declaration of Independence are (in alphabetical order):

John Adams (MA), Samuel Adams (MA), Josiah Bartlett (NH), Carter Braxton (VA), Charles Carroll of Carrollton (MD), Samuel Chase (MD), Abraham Clark (NJ), George Clymer (PA), William Ellery (RI), William Floyd (NY), Benjamin Franklin (PA), Elbridge Gerry (MA), Button Gwinnett (GA), Lyman Hall (GA), John Hancock (MA, President), Benjamin Harrison (VA), John Hart (NJ), Joseph Hewes (NC), Thomas Heyward, Jr. (SC), William Hooper (NC), Stephen Hopkins (RI), Francis Hopkinson (NJ), Samuel Huntington (CT), Thomas Jefferson (VA), Francis Lightfoot Lee (VA), Richard Henry Lee (VA), Francis Lewis (NY), Philip Livingston (NY), Thomas Lynch, Jr. (SC), Thomas McKean (DE), Arthur Middleton (SC), Lewis Morris (NY), Robert Morris (PA), John Morton (PA), Thomas Nelson, Jr. (VA), William Paca (MD), Robert Treat Paine (MA), John Penn (NC), George Read (DE), Caesar Rodney (DE), George Ross (PA), Benjamin Rush (PA), Edward Rutledge (SC), Roger Sherman (CT), James Smith (PA), Richard Stockton (NJ), Thomas Stone (MD), George Taylor (PA), Matthew Thornton (NH), George Walton (GA), William Whipple (NH), William Williams (CT), James Wilson (PA), John Witherspoon (NJ), Oliver Wolcott (CT), George Wythe (VA)
