"The evidence for an early afternoon chart has been largely ignored and has been promoted by only a few astrologers, including Marc Penfield, whose source was [John Hancock biographer] Herbert S. Allen [...] Allen's account receives secondary support elsewhere, chiefly in a work on the history of the Great Seal by Gaillard Hunt [...] Hunt's source was a long article, 'The Great Seal of the United States' by a journalist, Benson J. Lossing, which appeared in Harper's Magazine' [... Lossing's] account is clearly consistent with the Journals of Congress, for had the matter of the Declaration been raised between 10 and 11 a.m., it is perfectly reasonable to assume that, with so many people involved, agreement was not reached until 2:00 p.m. ... It is also worth noting that, according to Lossing's account, upon which Hunt relied, the design of the Great Seal was agreed at around 6 p.m." Campion (Second Edition, 1996), "The Book of World Horoscopes," pp. 411-412.

Additional information: "On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress officially declared independence and formed the United States of America by adopting the Declaration of Independence. Written by Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, the declaration was a sweeping indictment of the king, Parliament, and the British people. It also set forth certain self-evident truths that were basic to the revolutionary cause. It said that all men are created equal, and are endowed by their Creator with rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. To protect those rights, men organized governments, and the governments derived their powers from the consent of the governed. But when a government ceased to preserve the rights, it was the duty of the people to change the government, or abolish it and form a new one.

"Thus the colonists were fighting for philosophical principles as well as specific objectives. The spirit aroused by the Declaration of Independence was an important factor in the ultimate American victory." The World Book Encyclopedia, CD-Rom edition, 1967.
