Since 1681-1682, when the

Since 1681-1682, when the Pennsylvania elected government refused to govern over the people; the only person who didn't like it was William Penn who wanted people to pay property taxes to him. It took nearly ten years before Penn could get the British military to force government on the people. However, I don't think that Pennsylvanians experiment with Anarchy is what the poster was talking about. The person was probably making reference to Philadelphia acting as the capital while Washington DC was built. Also, obviously Philadelphia was where the Declaration of Independence was written, The Articles of Confederation, and where the US Constitution were signed; since Philadelphia was the site of the Continental Congress.
