The troop will take the train into Philly on Saturday for a hike/walk (11k) through the historic and waterfront areas of Philadelphia. See where the Declaration of Independence was signed by patriots of a very new government. You will pass by the house where Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence as well as Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and Betsy Ross house. Walk along the Delaware River waterfront, and through the Italian Marketplace. More info here. Afterwards we will eat lunch in the city and return home by train. The troop will cover the cost of the train tickets, but plan to bring money for lunch at Reading Terminal. Bring the signed release form (below) to Tuesday's patrol meeting.
