Pennsylvania Delegates

Pennsylvania was founded in 1681, but a Swedish man named Peter Minuit had rightly claimed it in 1638. King Charles II gave William Penn the land grant for what is now known as Pennsylvania. It was named as such after William Penn’s father, Admiral Penn.

Pennsylvania sent eight (8) delegates to the Philadelphia Convention. It was the largest delegation to the convention and all signed the Constitution.
