Drawing of Independence Hall

Invited by Congress in 1824, Marquis de Lafayette toured the United States, greeted by crowds and parades. "The Hall of Independence" was fitted up "in the most splendid manner." The event inspired the phrase “Hall of Independence,” thought to be the precursor of today’s Independence Hall.
