"Proclaim liberty throughout all parts of the land unto all the inhabitants thereof." This is a fragment of the inscription on what is perhaps one of the most famous bells in the world, which wasn't known about it initially. The Liberty Bell is in Philadelphia, and was initially created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Charter of Privileges by William Penn. But it was his special touch on July 8, 1776 by calling on citizens to hear the Declaration of Independence of the United States, which became a symbol of independence, freedom and the end of slavery. It is said that this later came to be what is now the United States, where all those men who wanted to create a democracy met. There was Benjamin Franklin, one of the drafters of the U.S. Constitution and Governor of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia is in Pennsylvania). Since 2006 there has been a pavilion located in Independence National Park, but throughout its history it has been leaning from side to side and has undergone several accidents, including the punishment of a U.S. citizen who wanted to protest this and was sentenced to prison. The crack has is the memory of all those war wounds. Today you can visit free-after passing a comprehensive and personal control of any type of bag you carry. It is in a small pavilion where different panels tell their story and give details of all the famous people who have passed through it, as the Dalai Lama. And, if it's closed, on one of the sides there's a panel with a ton of buttons that you can press to hear stories in different languages. And because everything is glass you can see the bell from where you are.
