Philadelphia Sightseeing - see the city of brotherly love!!

This city is a huge part of American history. During the American Revolutionary War, this was one of the nation's many capitals. While Washington, DC was under construction, it served as the capital. This is the place that the Declaration of Independence was signed. Philadelphia Sightseeing will include many historical sites. These include Independence National Historical Park, Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the home of Edgar Allan Poe, Betsy Ross, and Thaddeus Kosciuszko, The First and Second Banks of the United States, and Fort Mifflin.

William Penn is one of the notable figures from the area. "Penn's Treaty with the Indians" by Benjamin West was written in his honor. Penn was the man that gave the city it's name which is Greek for brotherly love. Benjamin Franklin was one of the leading citizens.
