An interesting tour of Independence Hall Today; A rewriting of history?Submitted by want_my_country_back on Thu, 08/20/2009 - 22:44
Has anyone been to Philadelphia lately and taken a tour of Independence Hall? It has been about eight or nine years for me and my how things change. Jefferson being dismissed as an unimportant voice in our country's development. Focusing on those who caused descent, tea party, and others, as trouble makers and asking if we would have been better off without those voices. There was a negative slant towards the defenders of liberty. I was shocked. There was talk of the ninth, tenth ammendments being nullified by the 14th amendment and terms like globalizaition and coming together as one world community will be our new focus and it is was impossible for our constitution to see this when it was crafted. Is this an attempt to rewrite history? Influence younger generations? The guide hardly talked about the building and focused more on his own slanted version of history. Maybe I'm hypersensitive but this seemed very odd and I can't remember our last tour being like this. Anyone else experience this at a national park?
