The Old Bell of Independence
Henry C. Watson; The Old Bell of Independence, or Philadelphia in 1776 (1851)
Old John Harmar [a possibly fictional veteran of the Revolutionary War] is quoted as saying: "How the people did crowd around the State House on the day the Declaration was proclaimed! Bells were ringing all over the town, and guns were fired; but above ‘em all, could be heard the heavy deep sound of this old Bell, that rang as if it meant something! Oh, them was great times!"
