When you think of July 4th, you may think of fireworks, flags, hot dogs and cookouts, but the reason behind all of the fun is so much more important. July 4th, 1776, marks the day America declared its independence from Britain, and while we’re pretty familiar with the role the founding fathers played in those early days, there may be a fact you don’t know.
The Declaration Was Written on a Laptop
No, our founding fathers didn’t have WiFi back in the day, but Thomas Jefferson did draft one of the most important documents in history on a laptop. Of course, in those times, a laptop was a small writing desk you could fit on your lap, not a Mac.
Happy 240th birthday America.
