  • It is unknown exactely when the Liberty Bell first cracked. Even more, the crack we see is actually “over 40 drill bit marks” that were used to try to fix the bell. Check out this Sound of the Liberty Bell.
  • While the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, it was not actually signed on that day. Most of the delegates signed the document on August 2, 1776, and others signed it later. However, July 4th is still celebrated as the official date of independence.
