John Trumbull's famous painting depicts the signing of the Declaration. This
depiction can also be found on the back of the U.S. $2 bill.

I was surfing and ran across another site called Sleeping Mommy. She has a wonderful write up for July 4th that you should really take the time out to read. Here is a little taste of her writing to wet your whistle:
.
"Today isn't about fireworks and cook outs and basking in the sun. There is a lot more to this date in history, ladies and gentlemen.Please take a few minutes to acknowledge what the forefathers of the great nation of the United States did and sacrificed to give us what we so proudly hold dear today. At least some of us hold it dear, others of us take it for granted as we sit about on our lazy butts and live our lives with a sense of entitlement and judgment."
.
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the
thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human
events, it becomes
necessary for one people to dissolve
the political bands which have
connected them with another, and to
assume among the powers of the
earth, the separate and equal station
to which the Laws of Nature and of
Nature's God entitle them, a decent
respect to the opinions of mankind
requires that they should declare the
causes which impel them to the
separation.
.
