Independence Hall and the related historic buildings which make up this national park witnessed an exciting time - when the 18th century delegates to the Second Continental Congress argued over the next step in the dangerous game of rebellion and then issued the Declaration of Independence. Eleven years later, secret deliberations and hard compromises resulted in a new frame of government to hold the country together - the Constitution of the United States. Millions of visitors explore the ideas and challenges of the past - so remote in time but so important to how we think today - when they visit Independence National Historical Park.
