Fun Facts About Annapolis... The Liberty Bell

Did you know Annapolis has their very own Liberty Bell? Well we do and it sits on St Johns College in Annapolis.

The Liberty Bell in Annapolis

Seems that back in the early 1950's a whole bunch of children throughout Anne Arundel County (that's the county Annapolis is located in) donated a slew of pennies to have the pediment erected to hold the Liberty Bell. The marker further says that in standing before this symbol you have the opportunity to dedicate yourself, as did our founding fathers, to the principles of the individual freedom for which our nation stands. Just a little fun fact about Annapolis

Martha, So much has changed in America. Our founding fathers are likely as disappointed with the change as I am. But, liberty and freedom is still alive .... as is living the American Dream.

Yes it has Kathleen The basics are still here which is a good thing though

Will I wonder how many pennies it would have taken today compared to the 1950's? Awesome thing for the kids to do I must say

It's neat that Annapolis has their Liberty Bell too.  We also have one here in Sacramento, at the state capital's park.
