Then Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declared the United States independent from Great Britain’s rule in June and the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence. After that, a committee of five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author prepared a statement for the Declaration of Independence. Congress revised and debated the date of the Declaration, and finally approved it two days later i.e. 4th of July.
