"We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal..."

Goods, ideas, and people intermingled in early Philadelphia.  In this diverse city, a new republic was born.  The Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution were both debated and signed inside Independence Hall.  Nearby sits the Liberty Bell, an international symbol of liberty.
