Imagine this neighborhood filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of war. Philadelphia's tradesmen and women produced muskets, cannons, ammunition, wagons, ships, uniforms, and flags that helped to win American Independence.In 1775, hat maker Benjamin Flower lived just a block from where you are standing. He joined the Revolutionary cause and became Commissary General of Military Stores for the Continental Army. This portrait shows him standing among cannons and ammunition on what is now Philadelphia's Franklin Square.
