The Liberty Bell is one of the world’s great icons of freedom, but that has not always been the case. Many Americans like to believe that the bell that became known as the Liberty Bell was first rung on July 4, 1776 from the tower of Independence Hall summoning the citizens of Philadelphia to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon. That belief is simply not true!

To further the confusion, people have accepted a fictional story written by George Lippard in 1847 for The Saturday Currier which told of an elderly bellman waiting in the State House steeple for the word that Congress had declared Independence. The story states that privately he began to doubt Congress's resolve. Suddenly the bellman's grandson, who was eavesdropping on the doors of Congress, yelled to him, "Ring, Grandfather! Ring!"

This story so captured the imagination of people throughout the land that the Liberty Bell was forever associated with the Declaration of Independence. The truth is that the steeple was in bad condition and historians today highly doubt that the Bell actually rang in 1776.
