Synopsis

Philadelphia by Shane Mountjoy

Using a debt owed by King Charles II, William Penn traded away a fortune in order to acquire an American colony. He could have become even wealthier from his land, but instead he used his colony to establish a place of safety for religiously oppressed people from throughout Europe. Within his colony, Penn planted a great city - Philadelphia. Photographs, sidebars, and a chronology are some of the useful tools featured that help bring this city's dynamic history to life.
