4th of July 1819 in Philadelphia

"Independence Day celebration in Centre Square" Philadelphia, 1819 by John Lewis Krimmel [Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia].

The enlarged pictures below show some tables with food and drinks.  Interesting signs - the first for the Navy "Don't give up the ship" sign, and across the way "Battle of New Orleans" of 1815 (when the War of 1812 hadended).

A past post on campaign furniture HERE and other 4th of July posts HERE
