When was the Declaration of Independence finished being written?




"On June 11, 1776, a committee consisting of John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, Robert R. Livingston of New York, and Roger Sherman of Connecticut, was formed to draft a suitable declaration to frame this resolution. Jefferson did most of the writing, with input from the committee. His draft was presented to the Continental Congress on July 1, 1776."
Source: Wikipedia

This first draft by Jefferson was completed in June 1776. The final draft was completed between then and July 4, 1776, when it was officially adopted by Congress. (An exact date is not listed.)
