"THE CRADLE OF LIBERTY."

Philadelphia is home to the creation and signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Philadelphia is also known as the Cradle of Liberty. The millions who thronged to celebrate the centennial of the Declaration of Independence in 1876 had plenty of encouragement in reaffirming that Penn’s green country town was the cradle of liberty. Ownership of the cradle was strengthened as surging crowds paraded down Broad Street for the centennial of the Constitutional Convention in 1877.

Enslaved Africans arrived in the area that became Philadelphia as early as 1639, brought by European settlers. In the 1750s and 60s, when the slave trade increased due to a shortage of European workers, 100 to 500 Africans came to Philadelphia each year. In 1765, there were about fifteen hundred black Philadelphians; of these, one hundred were free. By the time the American Revolution broke out in 1775, slaves were one-twelfth of the roughly 16,000 people who lived in Philadelphia.
