The Liberty Bell (Philadelphia, PA)


A symbol of the American Revolution, the Liberty Bell is a popular attraction in Philadelphia that draws more than two million visitors each year. Legend holds that the bell was rung to announce historic occasions such as the formation of the First Continental Congress, the Battle of Lexington and Concord, and the first reading of the Declaration of Independence. Its famous crack is actually one of many - the bell was damaged and repaired several times during the 18th century.
