April 12, 1776 Independence is on the mind of John Adams, who writes to Abigail, “You will see by the papers, the news, the speculations and the political plans of the day. The ports are opened wide enough at last, and privateers are allowed to prey upon British trade. This is not Independency you know. — What is? Why government in every colony, a confederation among them all, and treaties with foreign nations, to acknowledge us a sovereign state, and all that. — When these things will be done, or any of them, time must discover. Perhaps the time is near, perhaps a great way off.” http://www.revolution240.com http://ow.ly/i/elzLR
