About the Author

A “Bellwether” is by definition a trend setter, a trail blazer and one who leads a movement. At BellwetherPost we would like to think of ourselves as intrepid watchdog journalist news gatherers who espouse the truth and nothing but the truth. Covering the latest news that will have repercussions in not just our own backyards but the global community as well.

A most notable historical bellwether was the Liberty Bell. The history of the Liberty Bell is an interesting part of the history of the United States. After its first casting in 1751, the bell was delivered to the Pennsylvania State House and hung and displayed from scaffolding. The history of the Liberty Bell goes on to reflect that the first time the bell was rung; it cracked, resulting in the famous Liberty Bell crack. The Liberty Bell crack was remedied by recasting the Liberty Bell numerous times; however the Liberty Bell crack remains a favorite aspect of the bell’s history.

The history of the Liberty Bell also includes times of unrest within the United States, particularly during the American Revolutionary War. Rather than allowing British troops to seize the Liberty Bell in PA and possibly melt it down for ammunition, revolutionary soldiers moved the Philadelphia Liberty Bell north to Allentown and hidden beneath the floor boards of a church. The Philadelphia Liberty Bell stayed hidden under the church until 1778 when the last of the British troops were finally driven out. Although the bell was moved back to its original spot in Philadelphia in 1778, the basement of the church in Allentown where the bell stayed hidden for those years is now a memorial museum, known as the Liberty Bell Museum. The inscription on the Liberty Bell in PA reads, “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto the inhabitants thereof”.
