240 Years Ago...They Signed.

Today I'm blogging over at the Heroes, Heroines and History blog about this day in history.

Did you know the Declaration of Independence wasn't signed by all of the delegates until August 2nd, 1776? Sure, they adopted the resolution a month before, but the signing didn't happen until a month later. Actually, the timeline of the Declaration is fairly complex. Here are few tidbits I enjoyed discovering. :)

240 Years of Freedom and Giveaway

I'm blogging over at Heroes, Heroines and History about the 4th of July and other notable events that happened on that day. Here's a peek at the article.

July 4th, 2016 marks 240 years since the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Those 240 years have been filled with a lot of milestones. Tremendous history, inventions, battles, victories, losses, much to be attributed to our wonderful country and the American Spirit of innovation and patriotism. The very date of July 4 holds many notable events, so in honor of Independence day, I thought I would share a few of those tidbits with you.

On July 4th, 2016, Americans across the nation will celebrate the 240th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Besides the basic overview you got in history class, how much do you really know about the document and the men that signed it?
As an American and a history nerd, I was upset when I realized how much I didn’t know the struggle these men went through, who they really were, what they felt, and what they were putting on the line when they signed their name to that document.
