Signing Of The Declaration Of Independence

Although some historians disagree, it is generally believed that most of the signatures on the Declaration of Independence were signed on this date in 1776, following the printing of the official copy of the Declaration earlier in July. 56 delegates signed the Declaration on August 2nd, pledging "our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor" to the cause of American liberty.
