On July 4th I saw a sign that read, “Let Liberty Bell Ring U.S. of America.”
Among these may be found the Liberty Bell, which hung in the tower of the statehouse for many years.

A relic and symbol of the American Revolutionary War. The Liberty Bell, first cast in England in the 1750s, is inscribed with words from the Bible: “Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” The bell hung in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, and was rung at the proclamation of the Declaration of Independence. It cracked while being tolled for the death in 1835 of Chief Justice John Marshall and was taken out of service. It is now on display at Independence Hall.
