Franklin's Role in the
Approval of the Declaration Of Independence
on July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
   Benjamin Franklin - statesman, inventer, writer, Postmaster General, and genius - was one of the prime forces in the achievement of America's independence. Nowhere in history is Franklin's influence more keenly felt than in our Declaration of Independence.

   In June of 1776, Franklin was appointed along with Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Roger Sherman, and Fobert Livingston to draft the Declaration. Jefferson prepared most of the first draft, then delivered it to Adams and Franklin for editing. Both men made alterations, but Franklin was responsible for the most significant one. He changed Jefferson's reference to truths as being "sacred and undeniable" to "self-evident."

   On July 1, Congress began discussing the Declaration. Before long, the debate escalated into an impassioned series of Confrontations - concerning everything from the highest ideals to the smallest semantic details. The New York delegation refused to commit until they received instructions from home, the Delaware contingent was divided, and both Pennsylvania and South Carolina were initially opposed. The debated lasted into the next day. Finally, on July 4, 1776, the colonies approved the Declaration of Independence - the document which gave all Americans the right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Almost a month later, Benjamin Franklin added his name to the list of signers.

   The historic U.S. stamp on this Cover was issued in 1976 and depicts Franklin and Jefferson - the chief architects of the Declaration of Independence. The Cover is Postmarked on July 4, the exact anniversary of the ratification of this landmark document in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
