The Congress announced the 1776 that USA is independent of England. The people from Delaware, New Jersey and Penn, Philadelphia fought together.

William Penn spent a great deal of money in helping the settlers. After he returned to England he was put in prison for debt by a unworthy man who was an employee of him.
