The Rising Sun

At Independence Hall, as the delegates signed the Constitution, Franklin pointed to the president's chair, which had a sun painted on it. Franklin eloquently stated before all the representatives:
"I have often...in the course of this session...looked at that...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."

Sorry Ben...
