Liberty Bell & Independence Hall
$13.00 – $35.00
The Liberty Bell used to be a fixture in the Pennsylvania State House and was made to celebrate 50 years since William Penn’s establishment of the Charter of Privileges. As the State House gained fame, so did its bell. It became a national symbol of freedom, especially during the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. It toured the country with abolitionists in protest of slavery.
Independence Hall is the building in the background. Though known by the Founding Fathers as the Pennsylvania State House at the time, it is now known as Independence Hall because it is where delegates from the 13 colonies decided to break from England by signing the Declaration of Independence. They then wrote and signed the United States Constitution, establishing a new nation and creating a new way of governing people through freedom, rights, and democracy.
