A day early this year - the official U.S. independence holiday is the 4th of July, the day in 1776 the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. Drafted by a committee headed by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration was approved two days after a vote had legally separated the colonies from Great Britain.
