Independent.


On this day in 1776, the Continental Congress passed the Lee Resolution, stating that "these United Colonies are, and of right, ought to be, Free and Independent States."

The Second Day of July 1776 will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires, and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.

John Adams to Abigail Adams, July 3, 1776
