Our Historical Vacation Around America By: Kamryn H, Lili, and Jake

Our first stop...Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Our first site that we are visiting is Independence Hall. Independence Hall is the building where both the United States Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were debated and adopted.

Our next stop is Congress Hall. Congress Hall is home to the U.S. Congress from 1790 to 1800, when Philadelphia served as the temporary capital of the United States. Also, Washington and Adams were both inaugurated in this build.

Our last stop for Philadelphia is Franklin Court. Franklin Court is complex of museums, structures, and historic sites within Independence National Historic Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was also home to Benjamin Franklin and founded in 1976.

Our next stop is ... Boston, Massachusetts.

Our first site that we are visiting is Old North Church. Old North Church, at 193 Salem Street, in the North End of Boston, is the location from which the famous "One if by land, two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent.

Our next site is the Freedom Trail. From an experiment in Puritan exclusiveness to an inclusive modern metropolis, every street, corner and building whispers stories of the past. The Boston Massacre and the original Tea Party took place here.

Our next stop is... New York City, New York.

The Empire State Building is a 102-story skyscraper located on Fifth Avenue between West 33rd and 34th street in Midtown, Manhattan, New York City. It was once the tallest building in the world.

Our next site is where our immigrant ancestors waited to be let into our country. Lady Liberty's (the statue of liberty's) significance grew as an inspiration to immigrants who sailed past her on their way to America.
