King Charles gave him a land grant in America in payment of a great debt owed to his father. He then invited all the persecuted peoples of Europe to join him in establishing a colony of religious toleration, as he himself had experienced imprisonment in the Tower of London for converting to the Quaker faith. Calling it a "holy experiment," he admonished the settlers to work together, naming the first city Philadelphia, meaning "Brotherly Love." It was there nearly a hundred years later that the Declaration and Constitution were written. He died this day, July 30, 1718. His name was William Penn.
