How great that we were in Philadelphia for the 227th anniversary of the United States Constitution! It was one of those perfect days when road schooling rocked. The beautiful National Constitution Center offered free admission today so we took a train in from our KOA into the city to be a part of the celebration.
Citizens of the United States have celebrated Independence Day and Presidents’ Day since the 1870s. In 2005, the nation began to celebrate Constitution Day also know as Citizenship Day. Constitution Day honors the day 39 delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the United States Constitution. This historic date was September 17, 1787 and we were here in Philadelphia’s Independence Hall to see the exact room where it took place.
Philadelphia is an amazing city with such a past that has been wonderfully preserved for all of us.
So proud to be an American and so grateful for our Constitution that affords us so much!
