Historic-City Philly


Philadelphia is the historic city Americans bring their children to to see the landmarks associated with the founding of America. A whole industry caters to all the heritage trails, icons and heroes associated with American independence from City Hall to Christ Church to Betsy Ross House. For each, a visitor centre, docents, role-plays, magazines, tours, souvenirs cater to citizenship education and myth-making. And the people enjoy it so much! They are proud to be Americans!
