Happy Birthday America

Not really our birthday.

The fighting had already begun by the time The Declaration was written, let alone signed.

We'd not yet won that war in 1776.

The nation that was formed after that war was won did not stand long.  The dissolution of the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union might be characterized as a coup, leading to the present Constitution.

March 4th is THIS nation's birthday.  We turned 228 this year.

July 4th is kind of the conception date.
