The Liberty Bell was not made in the United States and it was not rung on the first Fourth of July. It was cast in London in 1752, cracked in 1835, and was not named "Liberty" until the 1830s in memory of slaves seeking their freedom.

The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American independence, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Formerly placed in the steeple of the Pennsylvania State House (now renamed Independence Hall), the bell was commissioned from the London firm of Lester and Pack (today the Whitechapel Bell Foundry) in 1752, and was cast with the lettering (part of Leviticus 25:10) "Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof." It originally cracked when first rung after arrival in Philadelphia, and was twice recast by local workmen John Pass and John Stow, whose last names appear on the bell. In its early years, the Liberty Bell was used to summon lawmakers to legislative sessions and to alert citizens to public meetings and proclamations.WIKI

No immediate announcement was made of the Second Continental Congress's vote for independence, and thus the bell could not have rung on July 4, 1776, at least not for any reason related to that vote. Bells were rung to mark the reading of the Declaration of Independence on July 8, 1776, and while there is no contemporary account of the Liberty Bell ringing, most historians believe it was one of the bells rung. After American independence was secured, it fell into relative obscurity for some years. In the 1830s, the bell was adopted as a symbol by abolitionist societies, who dubbed it the "Liberty Bell." It acquired its distinctive large crack sometime in the early 19th century—a widespread story claims it cracked while ringing after the death of Chief Justice John Marshall in 1835.WIKI

Thanks, you and stringman for the info - and love that photo, Conrad. (I'm going put my answer in, but so far no one has picked the one I'm going for... but I'm basing it on the info posted... maybe you didn't vote or maybe I only think I figured it out dunno laugh )

P.S.I saw the Liberty Bell as a teenager when my parents decided to take a sidetrip to the New England area from our bi-annual trip to N. Carolina. Thanks again for the info - John Marshall seems to have been a very respected Chief Justice(even tho the bell cracked laugh) - my high school(alma mater) is named after him.
