Hard Bargains 1777 is a new Public Art project for York that employs art to engage the viewer with York’s unique position in the early history of the American republic - as the place where delegates from 13 independent states first agreed to form a permanent union - a confederacy that was bigger than the sum of its parts.
Inspired by a challenge from the late Louis J. Appell, Jr., the Hard Bargains project explores the significant ideas at the heart of York's role in our nation's early history.
In York, Pennsylvania, in the fall of 1777, representatives of the thirteen independent states met as the Second Continental Congress to debate and edit the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union. This hard won agreement provided a structure for mutual benefit and defense, and was a precursor to the United States Constitution. The Articles named this early confederacy “The United States of America.” After several months of negotiation, the Articles of Confederation were adopted in York on November 15, 1777. Printed versions were then sent from York for final review by each of the thirteen states, and formal ratification was completed by 1781.
