On July 4, 1837, in a speech celebrating the 61st Anniversary of the signing of the Decaration, John Quincy Adams proclaimed to the inhabitants of the Town of Newburyport:
“Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the World, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day. Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That if forms a leading event in the Progress of the Gospel dispensation?
Is it not the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth?
That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity and gave to the world the first irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Saviour and predicted by the greatest of the Hebrew prophets 600 years before.”
