“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”– The Declaration of Independence.
These lines are from one of the most important historic documents of the world; The Declaration of Independence. It was signed by 56 people, declaring independence from the British Rule on July 4th 1776. It is quite a well known fact! But how many of us know that, the original date of Independence is July 2nd 1776? They decided July 4th because John Hancock, the president of the Continental Congress signed the Declaration on that day (he was the last one to sign it!).
America has many such facts, which are not very well known to mankind. There is a very interesting fact regarding the National Flag’s design. The current flag’s design was first designed by a 17 year old boy. He did it as a school project in 1958 and he received a B- for that! Fascinating, isn’t it?
American land is also a land of wonders which are quite old. I mean, REALLY OLD!! World’s three Oldest Rivers; the New (IRONY!), Susquehanna and the French Broad Rivers flow through US! These rivers are not just centuries old; but millions of years old.
Wonderful facts aren’t they? Wonderful country always had wonderful presidents. But everyone’s favorite was and is Abraham Lincoln. Did you know that out of all the Presidents America has had he is the only president who was also an entrepreneur? He had a patent and a Saloon business under his name.
There’s one more fact which is worth sharing! World’s largest Air Force is US Air Force.
