Declaration of Independence Approved

The Second Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence. The document, however, was only signed by John Hancock and Charles Thomson, president and secretary. Most other members signed the declaration on August 2 but because of the outbreak of hostilities, a few signed later.
