The Liberty Bell

Tradition tells of a chime that changed the world on July 8, 1776, with the Liberty Bell ringing out from the tower of Independence Hall summoning the citizens of Philadelphia to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon.

  1. Hmmm...judging from the last two posts, it looks like someone has been traveling around "my" area. Living just a few miles south, though, we tend to take it for granted and don't go in as much as we could. Great pics!

  2. I think we need to ring bells to remind us of our liberty every day! Glad you got to see the real thing.
