July is just getting started and we’re ready to celebrate July 4th. Everyone knows that that is when the Declaration of Independence was signed forming the United States of America in 1776. However, our constitution wasn’t written and signed until 1787.
Do you know how many men signed both documents? There were six! George Read, Roger Sherman, Roger Morris, George Clymer, James Wilson and Benjamin Franklin. Many people think Franklin was one of our presidents. He was many things – diplomat, writer, inventor, and a ladies man, but he was never president. Everyone have a happy and safe July 4th.
