July 4th, Independence day, a great day for the USA, but also an important day for other nations.
However for 2 of the Founding Fathers the 4th of July turned out to be not such a great day after all.On July 4 1826, the 50th anniversary John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died. Just before Adams died, his last words included an acknowledgement of his longtime rival but also friend “Thomas Jefferson survives”, not knowing that Jefferson had died several hours before.
Five years later James Monroe(although he was not one of the founding fathers), the 5th President of the US, died at the age of 73 at his son-in-law’s home in New York City.
With his death came an eerie coincidence that many people just couldn’t ignore: But I believe that is all it is a coincidence be it eerie. It is however intriguing.
