Exactly!!!!!!!!! Boston is very historical but is just not as powerful as Philly. Philly is the big cheese of this country in history.

If American history only consisted of the years 1750 to 1800 than yeah, maybe then "Philly is the big cheese of this country in history".

After 1800? Umm no.

So Philadelphia's history just stopped after 1800? Haha... and Philadelphia has history back into the 1600's.

You are right, the Revolutionary Era does seem to count more than other eras. I think it is because it is both the begining of an independent United States and also that the early Americans were few in number and bravely fighting against the odds. We Americans seem to like the underdog.

Obviously, Philadelphia has history after 1800. My point is that as someone who read ALOT of history over the years, I have noticed that Philadelphia is only occasionally mentioned after 1800. I mean this is especially odd considering the city's large size.

As for the second sentence, Philadelphia was founded in the 1680s, but I suggest you leave the 1600s out in a contest between Philadelphia and Boston!
