Few cities in the United States have the history of the country so deeply entrenched.
Philadelphia’s central location in the colonies made it a natural center for America’s revolutionaries. The city played host to the First Continental Congress prior to the war, was the location of the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence at the Second Continental Congress during the war and was the locale of the Constitutional Convention after the war. From 1790-1800 Philadelphia served as the temporary capital of the nation while the Federal City was being constructed in the District of Columbia.
Here now is a very brief photographic tour within the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia.
