The Liberty Bell: From Obscurity to Icon

Description: In 1776 the bell which later became known as the Liberty Bell was hanging in the Philadelphia State House, but no one knew it was anything special. Shaped by national and world events, the power of the 2,000-pound Liberty Bell's message grew in strength. A wreath was laid beneath the bell to commemorate the Thirteenth Amendment, which made slavery illegal in the United States. Crowds often gather outside the Liberty Bell Pavilion for candlelight vigils to exercise their First Amendment right to disagree with their government. Tourists from all over the world come to see this international symbol of freedom. Why has the Liberty Bell become such a symbol of freedom? Standard 3.4.3
