Omnibit Of The Day

Thomas Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of Independence and he was picked for the job by John Adams.

Adams died in Quincy, Mass. on the document’s 50th anniversary. When told it was the Fourth, he replied  “It is a great day. It is a good day.”

A short time later he passed. His last words were reportedly  “Thomas Jefferson survives.”

Jefferson, however, had died several hours earlier in Virginia.
