The History of the Fourth of July

Forbes magazine has an interesting and short piece of the origins of the 4th of July. Apparently John Adams was all set for the 2nd of July. But, as writer Mark Lewis points out, "The heavy lifting had been done on July 2, but July 4 would get the glory."

Happy Fourth of July!
