Independence Hall
Looking into the Assembly Room inside Independence Hall. The chair behind the green table is where George Washington sat and signed the Declaration of Independence. It is the only authentic item in the room.

One Response to The Chair Where George Washington Sat As He Signed The Declaration of Independence

    I am curious about exactly where it is stated that George Washington signed the Declaration of Independence. If one checks one’s history, it will be seen that he was away commanding troops in the Revolutionary War at the time, and not part of the Continental Congress. Members of the Continental Congress, including such notables as Ben Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson were part of the group that signed. The most famous signature, of course, is that of John Hancock of Massachusetts, President of the Continental Congress. There was no United States of America, and no President, at that time.
