The Liberty Bell

Despite its iconic status, has not been heard since 1846, on George Washington’s birthday. It was built in 1752 and was first rung to celebrate the opening public reading of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. It is unclear as to when the Liberty Bell was cracked, but most major historians conclude either that it occurred during the Revolutionary War in 1824 or the funeral of John Marshall in 1835. In 1842 the Society for the Protection of German Immigrants in Texas aimed to convert Texas into a German state. By 1847, five settlements containing over 5000 German immigrants were set up across the state, but after 2000 more had arrived by 1853, the movement failed due to a lack of organization and planning.
