Philadelphia was the premier city of America during the Colonial Times and the Revolutionary War. But by 1800, it had lost its luster and as a city, it was a "has been." Its embracing of the Industrial Age (beginning in the 1840's) and its amazing development of the Pennsylvania Railroad made Philadelphia "America's Workshop." Discuss and learn from the city's ups and downs - and its great comeback of the 19th Century.
