A little bit of history: This is the Assembly Room in Independence Hall. The chair at the back of the room is the actual chair that George Washington sat in. Ben Franklin noted the design of the wood and didn't know if it resembled a sun rising or setting. After he signed the Dec of Ind he decided it was a sun rising. It was named the sunrise chair thereafter. Isn't that cool?
