Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's largest city, stands out for its rich history, which is displayed in the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed) and other sites of the American Revolution. Also iconic are the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, immortalized by Sylvester Stallone's triumphant career in the film Rocky.

Philadelphia was founded in 1682 by William Penn, an English Quaker. The city served as the capital of the colony of Pennsylvania during British colonial times. Philadelphia came to play a historic and vital role in the 18th century as the central meeting place for the nation's founding fathers, whose plans and actions in Philadelphia ultimately inspired and resulted in the American Revolution. Philadelphia hosted the First Continental Congress in 1774 after the Boston Tea Party, preserved the Liberty Bell and hosted the Second Continental Congress, during which the founders signed the Declaration of Independence, which historian Joseph Ellis has described as the most powerful and transcendent words in history from the United States.
Once the Revolutionary War began, both the Battle of Germantown and the siege of Fort Mifflin were fought within the city limits of Philadelphia. The city is the seat of its own county. Adjacent counties are Montgomery to the northwest; Bucks to the north and northeast; Burlington County, New Jersey, to the east; Camden County, New Jersey, to the southeast; Gloucester County, New Jersey, to the south; and Delaware County to the southwest.

The jurisdiction based in the Latin Church is based in the city, and its headquarters is the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. The Ukrainian Catholic jurisdiction is also based in Philadelphia and is based in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Fewer than 1% of Christians in Philadelphia were Mormons. The rest of the Christian demographic extends between the smaller Protestant denominations and between the Eastern and Eastern Orthodox, among others.
The Eastern Diocese of Pennsylvania (Orthodox Church in America) and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America (Ecumenical Patriarchate) divide the Eastern Orthodox in Philadelphia. The Cathedral of San Andrés is in the city. The Susquehanna-Delaware Basin divides the frequently contested “hunting grounds” between rival Susquehannock peoples and Lenape peoples, while the Catskills and Berkshires played a similar frontier role in the northern regions of their original colonial-era range.
