The above gives a rundown on the history of the Liberty Bell - surprising and interesting facts...

I was surprised to learn that the LB was not involved at all in the events of the Revolutionary War (as a career NPSer, you would think I would know better).

How funny. . .

Wildman800 remarked:

"I am still highly upset over President Kennedy’s funereal being shown on TV instead of Captain Kangaroo!!!!"

That would be the event I remember. Sitting in front of a black and white television watching just exactly that. . .(Well, maybe not that Capt. Kangaroo was preempted, but watching the funeral procession, the horse drawn caisson, and the infamous riderless horse with backward boots.

November 25, 1963.
