Thomas Jefferson First Draft Philadelphia
This area of the city is my old stomping ground, including Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Ben Franklin's print shop, Congress Hall, Carpenter's Hall, Betsy Ross House, and so much more.
Many people do not know that Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft in Philadelphia.
I went to Philadelphia School of Printing and Advertising at 9th and Market Sts. And I eventually taught the laser and holography workshop programs at the Franklin Institute Science Museum.
Philadelphia will come alive in 2026 as they -- and the rest of the nation -- celebrates the 250th birthday of the United States of America: the Semiquincentennial.
Wonders of the Bible hopes to be there!
