The Liberty Bell
The Liberty Bell is a very large bell. It is in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It doesn't ring like a regular bell because it is cracked. The Liberty Bell reminds us of the day the Declaration of Independence was first read aloud.
The Liberty Bell is made of copper, tin, silver, gold, and other metals. Millions of people visit the Liberty Bell each year. In 1996, it was struck to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday.
The Liberty Bell was also struck at the end of World War Two. The first crack was made when it was taken to Independence Hall.
The Bell weighs as much as a pickup truck. The crack in the Liberty Bell is almost as long as a yard stick. The yoke of the Liberty bell is made of wood called Slippery Elm. The third bell was made by two brothers who spelled Pennsylvania incorret.
