The Liberty Bell is a prominent mark in United States of Americas history. The Bell was made by White Chapel Foundry and it cost 30,000 in todays money. The White Chapel is a bell making company in England. In 1752 the bell was made and sent when it got there they rang the bell to make sure it worked and it cracked. They went to the captain to make him take it back because it was broken but he already had a full load. The iron forgers tryed to fix it but it still sounded bad. After 2 castings the bell started to sound better. Historians say the crew might have hit it hard when they were moving it. Eventually they got a new bell and they put the new bell in the empty bell tower. It rang from then on for july 4th.
