(Giving credit where credit is due: SOURCE)

1. We didn't actually declare Independence on the 4th of July. The official vote took place two days before.
2. There is something written on the back of the Declaration of Independence. No, it's not a hidden treasure map but instead it says "Original Declaration of Independence dated 4th July 1776."...upside down.
3. The average age of the signers was 45 years.
4. The Declaration of Independence was written on a laptop. Yes, it's true, but not a normal laptop. This laptop was literally just a piece of wood that Thomas Jefferson sat in his lap and wrote on.
5. Wearing Old Glory violates the U.S. Flag Code so technically you're committing a crime.
