Fun Facts:

The original bell was ordered from London It arrived in Philadelphia in August 1752. The bell was mounted on a stand to test the sound, and at the first strike of the clapper, the bell’s rim cracked.

The bell was broken into pieces and recast twice more before it was accepted by the city of Philadelphia. It is uncertain how this third bell came to be cracked; the damage occurring sometime between 1817 and 1846.

The United States flag.
