Rising Sun | 12″ x 12″ Oil on Canvas – George Washington used this chair during the Constitutional Convention in Independence Hall, Philadelphia.

Whilst the last members of the Convention were signing the Constitution,
Doctor Franklin, looking towards the Presidents chair, observed, “I have, often and often, in the
course of the session, and the vicissitudes of my hopes and fears as to its issue, looked at
that behind the President, without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting; but
now at length, I have the happiness to know, that it is a rising, and not a setting sun.”
– Benjamin Franklin

As American’s, as Patriot’s today, we should ask ourselves what we are doing to uphold the constitution, to keep our country a Rising and not a setting sun?”
