Birth of the Republic  
Washington and the Continental Army won a decisive victory at Yorktown. Yet what would independence mean? Could so many people living in such a vast land really govern themselves?  Many doubted, but the writing of the Constitution provided a resounding affirmation of the Glorious Cause.” 
From “The Constitutional Convention”: 
    At 3:00 in the afternoon, the signing began with the delegates moving to the front table according to the order of the states from north to south. When Pennsylvania's turn came, Franklin was helped to the front. Observers said the old man wept as he signed. Back in his seat, Franklin spoke quietly to a few other delegates.  He referred to the sun painted on the back of the president's chair. I have often...looked at [it]...without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting. But now at length I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting sun.”  Franklin was right, a new day was dawning for America.
