Articles of Confederation Day -
On November 15, 1777 the Second Continental Congress, while seated in York, adopted the Articles of Confederation, an epic document in American history, which served to unite the thirteen colonies into a unified confederation. This document matured as the forebear of the United States' current Constitution. Enjoy an autumn afternoon at the Trust's Colonial Court House (corner of West Market Street and Pershing Avenue), as the adoption of the Articles of Confederation is commemorated.
