John Adams, supporter of American independence and a representative for Boston at the First Continental Congress, felt that, after America gained independence from Great Britain, July 2nd was the correct date on which to celebrate American Independence Day.
July 2nd was when the vote for independence took place. July 4, 1776 was when the Declaration of Independence was officially signed.
