Using Philadelphia and Pennsylvania as a case study, students have the opportunity to examine critical events leading to the outbreak of the American Revolution, the political maneuvers resulting in Pennsylvania’s support of a declaration of independence, the revolutionary goals of different groups, and the economic issues confronting Revolutionary America. Students explore government making at the state level, comparing the “radical” Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776 to the more conservative Virginia Constitution of the same year. Students examine a variety of reform movements during the revolutionary era. The unit is the result of a collaborative effort between NCHS and Lights of Liberty, Inc. in Philadelphia, an immersing nighttime “edutainment” experience throughout the Independence National Historic Park.
