Founded in 1682 by Quaker William Penn, Philadelphia is the fifth most populous city in the US and one of the oldest and historically important cities during the birth and growth of the country. Philadelphia was an important center during the war of Independence from the British—the declaration of independence and the US constitution were both drafted and signed in Philadelphia's Independence Hall. Tourist events often center on the critical role the city played during the revolutionary war.
