Scenes from our day spent in Philadelphia on our field trip. The top picture is the Assembly Room at Independence Hall, where all the action was...Declaration of Independence and Articles of Confederation were adopted here, and the Declaration of Independence was drafted here. In the center of the room in the very back is the famous, original "Rising Sun" chair used by George Washington. One of the tour guides told me that one time, when Ronald Reagan was visiting, he plopped down in it without asking, and the entire staff about wet their pants. From there on out, when VIPs visit, a fake one is used, JUST IN CASE! I laughed for hours over that story.
