The Continental Congress actually voted for Independence on July 2, 1776. John Adams noted in his writings that July 2 should be marked "with pomp and parade...from one end of this continent to the other." He would turn down invitations to celebrations on July 4, believing that July 2 was the correct date for celebration.

A few people have been confused and some even confounded by observances taking place on July 5. While those people are in good company historically, we hope it won't keep them from joining the celebrations like it did for one particular esteemed forefather.
