Digital Restoration: The Normandy Liberty Bell
The famous bell tolled throughout the history of colonial Pennsylvania and the early United States, marking historical moments such as the Boston Tea Party, the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the ratification of the Constitution.
Nearly 100 years after the bell was cast, the bell had begun to crack. In February of 1846, while being rung in commemoration of Washington’s Birthday, the bell retained the crack that we are all familiar with today. The infamous cracked bell traveled the country visiting expositions, celebrations and the Chicago World’s fair. The bell was continually “tapped” to symbolize liberty and independence on monumental occasions such as the 150th Anniversary of American’s independence and on the WWII D-day invasion of Normandy.
