Their last words are particularly interesting. Before Jefferson died, he awoke and asked, "This is the Fourth?" It was actually only the third at the time, but he did make it to the fourth - fifty years to the day from the date of the Declaration of Independence (some accounts claim he spoke after this, though it's not clear what was said).
