Best Answer

The Liberty Bell dates back to the American Revolutionary War. It is an icon of liberty and justice. Tourists can still see it today. According to tradition, its most famous ringing occured on July 8, 1776 to summon citizens of Philidelphia for the reading of the Declaration of Independence. Although historians find this doubtful, because by that time the steeple which had held the bell had deteriorated significantly. It was also rung to announce the opening of the First Continental Congress in 1774 and after the Battle of Lexington and Concord in 1775. Unfortunately the Bell has a crack/fracture, eliminating the ability to ring properly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberty_Bell http://www.ushistory.org/libertybell/
