Most People Don’t Know There’s A National Park Right In Delaware

Delaware’s history is one that is tied together closely with the history of our nation, and it goes far beyond the fact that we were the first state to ratify the Constitution. A few years ago, thanks to the actions of President Barack Obama and the United States Congress, a National Park was created in Delaware to commemorate the contributions of Delawareans during colonization and the revolution.
