When did the colonist gain independence?

A very Touchy question because many believe what they were told in school about Boston and other popular places : Despite the "Historical Version " it started in Rhode Island. The FIRST colony to declare Independence from Britain was Rhode Island and Providence Plantations ( actually the State with the Longest Official name as well ) And it was the Last to Ratify the Declaration of Independence by the Remaining 13 Colonies. Rhode Island renounced its allegiance to the British Crown, on May 4, 1776. It was the last colony of the thirteen colonies to ratify the United States Constitution on May 29, 1790 once assurances were made that a Bill of Rights would become part of the Constitution. Therefore Until ALL 13 colonies had actually ratified the Declaration of Independence: which did not occur until Rhode Island was assured and Agreed in the act : the colonies did not Officially " Gain Independence" until May ,29,1790.
