Happy Second Thoughts Day

Since the Lee resolution on American Independence was passed yesterday July 2nd, but the delegates didn't get around to adopting, announcing or signing the Declaration of Independence (except for John Hancock who signed it July 2nd) until tomorrow July 4th, I imagine that they took this day to have grievous second thoughts about their treasonous activities. Shouldn't today be American Independence Second Thoughts Day?

I am glad they went through with it. What many people don't remember is that the Revolutionary war continued until 1783, long after Independence was declared.

Quick question: Do the British have July 4th?
