The Legends of "THE FIRST STATE" as the first State to enter the Union and "CAESAR RODNEY" character of the engraving.

 

Top year of adhesion to La Unión.
Caesar Rodney (1728-1784) was a delegate to the American Continental Congress.

 

On July 1, 1776, he rode the 80 miles to Philadelphia, suffering from asthma and cancer, yet defied luck one hot summer day.

 

It took him a whole day but he finally arrived in time to be able to exercise his vote, which at the same time was decisive in reaching the agreement for the independence of the future United States from the English metropolis.
Rodney is remembered in the State of Delaware and even more so in his hometown, Dover, for this fact and for having been a soldier, judge and spokesman in the State Assembly.
