Philadelphia.The name conjures up images of America’s long-ago past—William Penn, Benjamin Franklin, the Declaration of Independence, the Liberty Bell. But Philadelphia is much more than the birthplace of a democracy or the City of Brotherly Love. Its rich, dynamic history is filled with a multitude of events both epochal and everyday—from the first successful labor strike to the creation of an iconic western hat; the first organized protest against slavery to America’s most popular televised dance party; establishment of the first hospital to the creation of a famous calorie-laden sandwich—that have occurred in the more than 300 years since its founding in 1682. See how much you know about the city that was once the second most populous one in the British Empire and that became the heart and center of the colonies and the Revolution. With questions on one side and answers on the other, these 48 fact-filled Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information and perfect for students, teachers, and the purely inquisitive.
