Winner of a 2015 Book-of-the-Year award from the Society of American Travel Writers Eastern Chapter. Experience the founding of America in the city where it all began by strolling the newly created Philadelphia Liberty Trail. This guide takes a fresh approach to the historic district; going beyond such popular sights as the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, highlighting attractions and unique spots overlooked by other guidebooks. Philadelphia Liberty Trail provides the colorful history of each sight along with practical travel information. Historic tidbits sprinkled throughout engage visitors of all ages: * Learn the shocking story of Benjamin Franklin's electric turkey experiment. * Tour the sight of the first bank robbery in America in 1798, and learn how the hapless criminal was captured when he deposited the pilfered funds back into the very same bank. * Read about the unsung Quaker woman who saved George Washington's army from destruction. Easy to follow maps break the trail into segments. It also includes suggested side trips to area attractions such as Valley Forge and Fort Mifflin. Complete with lodging, dining, family-friendly options, and practical travel information, Philadelphia Liberty Trail immerses visitors in history right where it happened.
