“But now at length I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting Sun.”

Benjamin Franklin


America was built on hope.

Between 1774 and 1791, civic and religious leaders from the thirteen Colonies debated and compromised behind closed doors and in the public arena. Their goal? To establish a new country and, with it, a new government. Their fierce discourse and dedication to the principles of equality and freedom guided them to our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights.
