Dates for rectification given with U.S. chart No.1.
Ken Irving quotes Helen Boyd's "The True Horoscope of the United States," ASI Publishers, Inc., New York, 1975. "In the introduction, dated October 1973, Boyd says: "It is hoped that the documented evidence here will accomplish the purpose for which it is intended; namely, to establish the correct map for the United States. At 11:00 A.M. LMT, on July 6, 1775, through a DECLARATION OF WAR, the United Colonies became an independent STATE, severing all political and governmental ties with Great Britain. Never again since has the United States paid allegiance to any foreign power or ruler."
The caps are Boyd's. Firebrace's contribution to the book is a set of studies charting the 1775 chart and the 12:20 pm July 4 1776 contenders against an overlapping, though not identical, series of events such as Pearl Harbor, victory over Germany and Japan, Hiroshima, etc. Firebrace had tested several July 4 contenders against each other and the 12:20 pm July 4th scored better than the others, which is why it was used here.
Boyd, by the way, says the session convened at 9 am and that the declaration was ratified between 10 am and 11:30 am, though she gives no reference for that latter time span."
Prior to the publication of the book, Helen Boyd in an article, "The True Horoscope of the United States," Spica Vol II April 1963, copy in hand has the time of 10:30 AM LMT. She credits Brigadier Firebrace for considerable work rectifying the hour from a proposed two-hour span after the opening of the morning session, drawing a conclusion with which Boyd agrees without reservation.
For her conclusion and quotations, Boyd quotes:
The Journals of the Continental Congress, Vol 1, 1774-1776, Washington 1823
U.S. Continental Congress Secret Journals, Vol 1, Boston 1820
The Journals of the Continental Congress, Voo.1, II, III, 1774-1776, Washington 1905

She quotes, "July 6, 1775, Congress convened 9:00 AM, Thursday. The business of the day was disposed of first - after which the Congress resolved itself into a Committee of the Whole and:
"Unanimously approved by the Congress: A Declaration by the Representatives of the United Colonies of North America at Philadelphia, setting forth the Causes and Necessity of their taking up arms."
Helen Boyd, "True Chart of the U.S." the Declaration of War by the Colonies to the Crown, given as 11:00 AM LMT with a time rectified by Firebrace
The Second Continental Congress assembled on 5/10/1775, naming George Washington as their commander. On 4/12/1775, 4:30 AM, as the Union ships sailed into the harbor, a Confederate battery sent the first shot of the conflict. At Bunker Hill in June 1775, the first standup fight broke out between raw New England militia and British regulars. On 7/06/1775, Congress ratified the Declaration on the Causes of Taking up Arms, considered by some as the moment when the colonies severed ties with England. They declared that they would not submit to unconstitutional tyranny and would resist by force in order to protect the freedoms which they believed to be their birthright.
Jim Lewis, The Astro*Carto*Graphy Book of Maps," 1989, p.277, presents July 6, 1775, 11:00 AM LMT as one of three speculative charts for the USA.
