Inscription
When President John Adams ordered a day of mourning throughout the nation to mark George Washington's death in 1799, Reverend Richard Allen saw an opportunity for the Free African Community of Philadelphia to expand the meaning of liberty. He called on Americans to honor the first president by imitating his will in which he freed his slaves, and by heeding the Free Africans' increasingly bold petitions to Congress.
