The Liberty Bell -- A Symbol Of Independence Memorial day is upon us, and in honor of all of the men and women who died while in the military service fighting for my independence , I've decided to hub on a single of the most famous symbols of american freedom and justice, the Liberty Bell. In 1751, the pa Assembly purchased the Bell to commemorate Pennsylvania's original Constitution, bill Penn's 1701 Charter associated with Priveleges. Initially inscripted on the bell had been "Proclaim freedom thro' all of the Land to all the inhabitants thereof Levit. XXV.10." Also written into the bell is the quatation, "By order of the set up of the land of Pensylvania for the condition House in Philada." that's correct, PeNsylvania.

In 1777, Philadelphians removed just about all bells from the city since the British were about to take up Philadelphia. They feared that the British would melt the bells and employ them for cannon. The Liberty Bell was hidden in the floorboards in Allentown, PA in the Zion cool Church. In the 1800s, the Bell traveled around the usa to recover wounds from the Civil war.
