Who is depicted riding a horse on Delaware's state quarter?

Answer:

Caesar Rodney

The Delaware state quarter depicts Caesar Rodney's historic horseback ride in 1776. Despite his obscurity, Caesar Rodney was a founding father, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and an American war hero. On July 1, 1776, Rodney famously set off on his historic 80-mile journey to Philadelphia withstanding thundershowers and a severe summer heat wave. His ride ended at the doorstep of Independence Hall just in time to cast Delaware's deciding vote in favor of our nation's independence. This native of Dover has also held more public offices than any other Delaware citizen.
