Fact of the Day: Liberty Bell

The Liberty Bell is famous for being a symbol of American Independence during the Revolutionary War. Except the bell didn't become well-known until after the 1830's. Abolitionists had tried associating the bell with the freedom of slaves. The false stories about it would follow later.
