Comments and Notes
THE STORY: Ideals -- liberty, freedom.
FABRICATOR: Whitechapel Bell Foundry, London, England, 1752; Thomas Lester, founder
DEVELOPMENT DATES: Start Date -- 1846: while Bell is rung February 22 for Washington's birthday, the "zig-zag" fracture occurs. After this, the Bell's function of ringing for special events is ended and its becoming a memorial then begins. Dedication Date -- 1852: year in which the Bell was moved down from the steeple, where it had functioned as a bell, and placed in the "Declaration Chamber" of Independence Hall where it would be observed as a monument to freedom and liberty. This analysis based on information in Rosewater's "The Liberty Bell"; the Liberty Bell timeline displayed at www.ushistory.org/libertybell/timeline.html; and, Whitechapel Bell Foundry website at www.whitechapelbellfoundry.co.uk/
