American colonies broke free from British rule when the Continental Congress voted in favor of the Declaration of Independence on July 2nd, 1776. Two days later, the Declaration was redrafted and signed. Many documents, speeches, and minds of unwavering strength were needed to create the beginnings of a country, and just as many ambitious Americans dedicated to the evolutionary fortitude of our country today must be honored in our continued ability for all of our citizens to live as freely as possible.

Below are the heavy hitters of foundational American freedom. Get in the July 4th spirit and read about what it takes to wield power for the people!
