The American history behind the name of this roast:
George Washington's Rising Sun chair
The Rising Sun Chair is the chair that George Washington sat in during the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.
Benjamin Franklin, the oldest delegate at the Constitutional Convention, commented that he had been wondering all summer if the decorative sun carved on Washington's chair was rising or setting. He concluded that the sun was indeed rising after the Constitution was signed, a symbol of the young nation ascending at the dawn of its new government.
"I have often looked at that picture behind the president without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting,” remarked Franklin. “But now at length I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting sun."
On September 17, 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed by 38 of the conventions 41 attendees, more than 11 years after the colonies had first declared their independence from Britain. The Constitution was then sent to the 13 states to be ratified before officially becoming the law of the land for the United States of America.
The Rising Sun chair was constructed in 1779 and is still on exhibit in Independence Hall's Assembly Room in Philadelphia.
