This image shows an 1876 engraving titled "Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1776" made available by the Library of Congress. On that day, the Continental Congress formally endorsed the Declaration of Independence. Celebrations began within days: parades and public readings, bonfires and candles and the firing of 13 musket rounds, one for each of the original states. Nearly a century passed before the country officially named its founding a holiday.
The 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence depicted in this engraving set in motion the long process of compromises and negotiations that led to the signing of the Constitution 11 years later.
