So 2/3 of 100 dollar bills are abroad. Most are probably in Iran during that awesome deal with Iran a few years ago.

Shoshana Katz, Per the answer, July 2nd was THE VOTE; July 4th was the official APPROVAL of the vote and August 2nd was when most signatures were applied.

Interesting and thank you for educating me. I passed the citizenship test in 2001 to become a naturalized American. I think most foreigners know more about the USA than native Americans because we have to study it.

I knew about the 2nd July being the date of signing, and why the 4th was chosen. I knew about Philadelphia being the 1st capital and that no one language was made official.

Jim Mascair, Canada doesn’t have an Independence Day. July 1 is Canada Day when we celebrate the uniting of different provinces to one country. 🇨🇦

According to historyNew York City was the first capital of the United States once the Constitution was ratified. George Washington took the oath of office to become the first President of the United States from the balcony of the old City Hall. And to echo other's questions..What is August the 2nd all about

We were in Canada and they celebrated their Indepependence Day on July 1st. The Canadians beat us to it on this one.

Seems odd that in the USA there can be a town with only one person. In Canada ,I think there needs to be 500 people before it is considered a town. Smaller it is a hamlet and then maybe a siding.
