PHILADELPHIA - BIRTHPLACE OF AMERICAN RIGHTS - Second capital of the United States and first capital of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia was both. The First and Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia as the new nation was being born.
The Declaration of Independence was written and signed here, and eleven years later the new Constitution of the United States was drafted in the State House, better known as Independence Hall. By the end of the 18th century, Philadelphia was the largest city in the United States and the third largest in the English-speaking world. This city was home to one of our Founding Fathers and most beloved statesmen -- Benjamin Franklin.
