On this day in 1776, 50 members of the Continental Congress in Philadelphia officially signed the Declaration of Independence, which told the King of England that they were forming their own nation because he was oppressive and overtaxing.
- It took so long to get it signed because they had to wait for the Tea Party participants to ride in from Boston.
