History

Independence National Historical Park (INDE) was authorized by an act of Congress on June 28, 1948, and was formally established on July 4, 1956, “preserving for the benefit of the American people as a national historical park certain historical structures and properties of outstanding and national significance…associated with the American Revolution and the founding and growth of the United States.” Located in the Society Hill, Old City, and Germantown neighborhoods of Philadelphia, Independence National Historical Park encompasses not only such famous sites and artifacts as Independence Hall, Congress Hall, and the Liberty Bell, but over twenty other structures, gardens, squares, and cemeteries.

Independence National Historical Park observed the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution in 1987 by hosting many programs and events. A highlight of these celebrations was Miracle at Philadelphia, an exhibit exploring the history of the Constitutional Convention and the ratification of the Constitution in 1787. Housed at the Second Bank of the United States from 1986 to 1987, the exhibit was organized by the Friends of Independence National Historical Park (FINHP) in partnership with The American Philosophical Society, The Historical Society of Pennsylvania, The Library Company of Philadelphia, and Independence National Historical Park. It was funded primarily through grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the J. Howard Pew Freedom Trust.

Margaret Pace (Peggy) Duckett served as project director for Miracle at Philadelphia and oversaw much of the planning. Other key individuals included the history, museum, and interpretive staff at INDE, historical consultant Richard Rabinowitz of American History Workshop, exhibit designer Nick Paffett of Krent/Paffett Associates, and fabricators from Charles Maltbie Associates. In addition to members of the consortium, participating institutions that loaned documents and portraits for the exhibit included the National Museum of American Art, the Library of Congress, and the Windsor Castle Royal Library.

The self-guided, multimedia exhibit opened to the public on September 17, 1986. The opening was officiated by Philadelphia Mayor W. Wilson Goode, and was attended by Chief Justice Warren Burger, chairman of the Commission on the Bicentennial of the Constitution. Arranged along a timeline format, Miracle at Philadelphia began with the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781 and concluded with an overview of the Constitution’s influence over the past 200 years. The bulk of the exhibit focused on issues surrounding the Constitutional Convention, including the power struggles between large and small states, the influence of regional economic interests, and the creation of three separate branches of government. The story was conveyed through original historical documents, including James Madison’s notes of the debates and James Wilson’s early drafts of the Constitution. The exhibit also included portraits, sculptures, models, audiovisual presentations, computer graphics, and supplemental educational resources.

Miracle at Philadelphia closed on December 31, 1987.
