The Liberty Bell, Philadelphia, PA

The Abolitionist advances of the 1800s took advantage of the State House Bell, turning it into a symbol of their battle for freedom and calling it the Liberty Bell. This bell, which weighs over a ton, has been associated with several important events in American history, including the War of Independence and the Civil War.

On July 8, 1776, popular legend says the Liberty Bell rang to symbolize America’s independence from Great Britain. People who wish to see the Liberty Bell can visit its hometown of Philadelphia, where the bell is displayed in a specially designed dome.

Fun Fact: When visiting, you may notice that “Pennsylvania” is misspelled on the bell. That’s because the spelling of the state’s name was not, in fact, consistent until the late 1800s.

    My now deceased husband was a USMC officer in the early 1970s. He had the honor of leading the sunset parades at Ft. McHenry during the summer months. Picture brought back fond memories of those nights! Thank you~

  2. Thank you for this most memorable tour. As I was going through the monuments, it dawned on me that my Dad planned many of our family vacations at the beautiful, historic sites, (Statue of Liberty, Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, The Liberty Bell, and Colonial Williamsburg. I appreciate my Father’s excellent choices for some of our vacations.
    This year I hopefully will visit Mt. Rushmore, SD.
