Thing is ... the 4th of July isn't even the day the ex-colonials should be celebrating anyway.
Because independence was declared by the Continental Congress on the 2nd of July 1776.
John Adams wrote to his missus "the Second of July, 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe it will
be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival".
And most of those "brave revolutionary heroes" didn't even sign the declaration until the first week of August 1776, presumably because they were
hedging their bets. It's a wonder the US Navy today doesn't have a ship named "USS Indecisive" or "USS I Crapped My Pants".
And the good ol' Liberty Bell, clanging away on the 4th as the nativos partied the night away. That didn't happen at all ... there's no historical
record of the bell being rung that night.
Half the crap written by Americans about this event is all make believe, "historic revisionism", call it what you will.
