50 Years after signing the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

The Declaration of Independence.  
Did you know that political rivals Thomas Jefferson and John Adams both died on the same day (July 4th, 1826) within hours apart, 50 years to the day after they signed the Declaration of Independence.  It has been stated that after their presidency they corresponded with one another about normal things like gardening, horses and the like.

The other President and signatory to die on July 4th was James Monroe but the year of his death was 1831.  

Thought you might like to know that tidbit of information.

Happy AND safe July 4th to everyone.
