There were two Declarations of Independence.

1. Richard Henry Lee of Virginia called on the delegates of the Second Continental Congress to declare independence on June 7, 1776. They were a few votes short so they adjourned. Franklin, Adams, and Jefferson were assigned to drafting a document to support a declaration. On July 2nd, the delegates made their declaration for independence.

2. The document was finished and agreed to on July 4th. Most of the delegates didn't sign until August 2nd.

One was the declaration - July 2nd

The other was the paperwork - July 4th, August 2nd
