78 US - Independence Hall (1979)

Brief Description

"The Declaration of Independence (1776) and the Constitution of the United States (1787) were both signed in this building in Philadelphia. The universal principles of freedom and democracy set forth in these documents are of fundamental importance to American history and have also had a profound impact on law-makers around the world."
独立大厅
"1776年《独立宣言》和1787年《美利坚合众国宪法》都在费城这座独立大厅里签署。这两份以自由和民主为原则的文件不仅在美国历史上发挥重要作用,同时也对世界各国法律的制定产生了深远影响。"
