One of the most fascinating coincidences in American History is that both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, the main architects of the document that gave birth to this new Nation, died on July 4, 1826, exactly 50 years to the day from the birth of the country they founded.    It’s also worth noting that in 1831 James Monroe, our Nation’s 5th President, also died on the 4th of July.
