Happy 4th of July!

US Declaration of Independence

Happy Fourth of July! Today's holiday celebrates the adoption of the US Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

This is a big date for the US; and also marks an event that had influence beyond the borders of that country...

Bastille Day (July 14th, 1789)
Declaración de Independencia de Venezuela (July 5, 1811)
Declaración de la Independencia Argentina (July 9, 1816)
Acta Solemne de la Declaración de Independencia de la América Septentrional (November 6, 1813)

BTW, had you noticed the clustering of these independence dates?
