Hall and the related historical buildings which make up the park
witnessed an exciting time - when the 18th century delegates to
the Second Continental Congress argued over the next step in the
dangerous game of rebellion and then issued the Declaration of Independence.
Eleven years later, secret deliberations and hard compromises resulted
in a new frame of government to hold the country together - the
Constitution of the United States.
20th century visitors explore the ideas and challenges of the past
- so remote in time but so important to how we think today - and
who we will be in the 21st century - when they visit Independence
National Historical Park.
