Happy Independence Day everyone!

‘On July 1, 1776, debate on the Lee Resolution (Richard Henry Lee’s resolution for independence from Great Britain) resumed as planned, with a majority of the delegates favoring the resolution. Congress thought it of the utmost importance that independence be unanimously proclaimed. To ensure this, they delayed the final vote until July 2, when 12 colonial delegations voted in favor of it, with the New York delegates abstaining, unsure of how their constituents would wish them to vote.
