  "The Forests of Penn," Pennsylvania, and Philadelphia, "city of brotherly love," were founded by William Penn, an English Quaker born October 14, 1644. The precepts he set forth shaped the destiny of Philadelphia until the Revolution and was an inspiration for the new government forming in 1776. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan conferred Honorary Citizenship of the United States upon William Penn and his second wife, Hannah Callowhill Penn. Penn died on July 30, 1718. He was buried at Jordans, 22 miles from London.
