This was a great page for doing research. My 7 year old son has to do a project on colonialism. With information from this page and a clay remake of the Liberty bell I think he will have a super project. Thanks!
crystal and dillon, Skowhegan, Maine [03-23-1998]

I went to the Liberty Bell on our eigth grade trip with my school in February. I was surprised that the bell was in a little building. Hardly anyone was in there when I was there. Just Japanese guys. It is kinda neat that you can feel it. All the other historic stuff you can't even get near so it doesn't seem very real. It's also kinda odd, the bell I think, didn't look very well made. It was gloopy and bumpy. I guess it really wasn't, if it cracked the first time it was rung. Well, anyway, we have to make up a whole report thing on our trip back East and it is due in a few days so I was just looking around for info and stuff. I hope that whoever reads this has a fun day and I'm proud of you that you take the time to read stuff like this. If anyone will ever read this. Oh well, I gotta go. Bye, bye.

I just returned from a Leadership Conference at Valley Forge, and had the opportunity to view the Liberty Bell while I was there. I can honestly say, that seeing that bell, that piece of our heritage was one of the high points of our tour through historic Philadelphia. I am looking forward to being able to return again.

I came to this site from the Addy American Girls site. That's pretty neat! I think the Taco Bell joke was funny, as long as it said "April Fools" somewhere on it, but I couldn't see that it did. If not, it was probably a bit in poor taste. I'm glad you have a site like this to benefit & educate people. Thanks!!

In 1979 I bought a new sailing boat, a Bellona 23. When I was thinking about what name I would give it suddenly "Liberty Bell" come to my mind. And so it was. It was not until later that I realised what a good name it was for a sailing boat as it symbolizes freedom. I still sail the same boat and it has given me many good times. Yours Urban Lange

I believe so-called historians influenced by the religious right in America today are distorting the facts and lying to the American people. They will have a price to pay someday: National apostasy is followed by national ruin! God help them to realize their mistake before it is too late. Do not try to amend the first amendment to the Constitution, otherwise the Liberty Bell and the Constitution that we as Americans hold so dear, will all have been for naught! Thank you for letting me share my thoughts with you. How is that for a red-head!

Karen, I'm awsome [06-23-1998]

Surely takes me back to my 1 1/2 years in Philadelphia in 1944-1945. I worked in Washington Square within that historic square mile, but did not fully appreciate that fact while there. I was a recruiter for the Coast Guard in the district office DCGO across the street from the square where they recently found graves of many Revolutionary Patriots.Since that long-ago time I've discovered that one of my ancestors waw given a city lot when he purchased land in the Welsh Tract. The lot was located where Independence Hall now stands. I am sure I would have taken mush more interest in my surroundings had I only known that my ancestors came with Penn in those years at the founding of his colony. Anyway, I'd dearly love to see it all again. Just love being able to go on this little tour! Miriam Bertelson

I am setting up URL's for my sons home schooling. This site is a fantastic place to start. While watching tv last night a newly citizenshiped person made the statement that he knew the names of all the presidents. And bet that the average citizen couldn't name them. HE'S RIGHT! I want my son to know the history of this "Great Land". There is no future without a past. And it's up to the coming generation to create the future of this country. So, he is definitely going to know its past. Thank you so very much for the hard work put into this site. It was listed on 6/28/98 in the Louisville, Kentucky Courier Journal special report. Great reference and learning site.

I was there when they moved "The Bell" back in the 70's...It is truly an amazing piece of history. Philadelphia is so full of many wonderful things. It is blessed with so much of our nation's history. I wonder what the Patriots of that day would think of the American's that live today...I wonder if they would still give their lives like so many of them did, I don't think there are many true patriots among ourselves today... It makes me feel ashamed of ourselves with our selfish behavior, we have so much in the way of modern conveniences (and they froze to death out in Valley Forge). I feel sorry for our forefathers and would like to thank them. God Bless America.

This is the first time that I was able to read the history of the Liberty Bell. It is great and we are going to try to put it in a frame, display it to the public at our own building every July 4. I love your websight - has an air of patriotism. Thanks for your strong belief in the struggle for independence of America and many thanks for sharing the history of the Liberty Bell.

What a great site and easy to find. I first visited the bell in 1964 or '65 when it was still being displayed in Independance Hall. I was impressed as a child. My wife wanted to know how (and when) the Liberty Bell cracked. I remembered that it cracked the first time it was rung but I did not remember anything about the re-castings of the bell. Great information and an inspiring historical account. Can;t wait to take my own children to see it. LET FREEDOM RING!!!

Looking forward to seeing the real thing at the end of August with our four year old. Would like to see a "Liberty Bell tour" within our public school systems throughout the United States.

Kristin Sapp [07-21-1998]

Your website is very informative. Thank you for answering questions that I had long forgotten the answers to. Perhaps it is time for "The Bell" to once again make a trek across country. It would be wonderful for the less traveled youth to have the opportunity to stand near such a great symbol of freedom and American history.
Marty Spoor, Age 37 [07-27-1998]

Early August we are coming to Philly to stay for about two days. We are going to see Betsy Ross's house, the liberty bell, the zoo, and Norman Rockwell museum. I'm looking forward to going to Philly because i did a report about Besty Ross's house and about all that. I had to even dress like her in the old days. Love,

I once lived in Philadelphia for about a year and made it a point to see the Liberty Bell, the Betsy Ross House and a number of other historical sites. To touch the Liberty Bell sent chills up and down my spine and I was SO PROUD. It is a shame this bell is silent now but it is one of the most beautiful, and even sacred, historical artifacts we have.

The Bell's message of Freedom still rings in this land, but many of our freedoms are being challenged today. Freedom to speak and pray in public arenas are thought to be a threat to the same freedoms of others. How sad that some people are so insecure in themselves that they would prefer to stop others from saying a prayer. Our founding fathers believed in these freedoms, fought and died for them. We need to vote to protect them, or we will lose them. Power corrupts shallow minds. I've never had the privilege of visiting the bell in person. Thanks for making it possible to visit it in my home.

I am a direct descendent of Nathaniel Pass, brother of John Pass, one of the two casters of the Liberty Bell. While on a recent business trip to Philadelphia I had the opportunity to visit The Bell for the first time. I mentioned to a park ranger that I was related to John Pass and was then given a personal tour by the Director of Park Services. What a thrill to be part of such a tresured American, no world, icon of liberty and freedom. Thanks for the wonderful job you have done here in preserving our heritage. Any additional information on John Pass would be appreciated. Thank-you, David Pass

We visited the Liberty Bell last week...Independence Mall was really nice to walk through, but we were particularly impressed with the people who were dressed in the "period costumes" as they walked around the square. We agree that Philly is a city of brotherly love, in the fact that everyone was so very nice. We want to go back. We enjoyed "Ben Franklin" the most.

When was the rivet placed? Was there a ceremony? What is the specific density of the metal of the bell? Who placed the rivet? Where was the rivet repair made? Who was the first person to ring the bell before it was delivered? Who was the first person to ring the bell after it was delivered? Who was the first person to ring the bell for an official ceremony or celebration? Was the bell pitch Eb before or after the crack? Why was the pitch not Bb or Ab? What was the material of the clapper?

The large crack that you see is a repair not the crack that many of us thought happened from the tolling. The crack is above the repair. Also, Pennsylvania is spelled Pensylvania on the bell.

I propose our Congress pass a resolution that our Liberty Bell should be rung as both Clinton and Gore are impeached. This will be our Shot heard around the World. By Americans for Americans. We need Patriotism and the resounding ring of Truth and Honor. History will know that both of these Global, Elitist, Socialist, and others like and around them will not be tolerated. June 6, 1944 was the last time it was used,It was broadcasted throughout the United States when we went into France. It may be cracked, and old, but I believe Americans and the World will hear the call, and a Sleeping Giant will Awake, and bring honor to our Constitution.
Randy Lewis Grass Valley, Calif [12-18-1998]

My grandfather, Jim Quirk, was a member of the Honor Guard who escorted the Bell to San Fran in 1915. He was given a wooden mallet with a silver plaque commemorating his participation. This was stolen from our home along with other Liberty Bell memorabilia in the 1970s. Does anyone else have one of these commemorative mallets? I would love to have a picture for my children...
