Did you know…
Only two people signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th. The last signature wasn’t added until 5 years later.
The US national anthem actually has three verses, but everyone just knows the first one.
Francis Scott Key was a young lawyer who wrote the poem, ‘The Star Spangled Banner’, after being inspired by watching the Americans fight off the British attack of Baltimore during the War of 1812. The poem became the words to the national anthem.
The motto of the American people, “In God We Trust,” was not adopted as the national slogan until 1956.
