RINGING OUT LIBERTY
July 8, 1776, Philadelphia
Home City of the Pennsylvania Railroad
Take a step back in time, to perhaps the most glorious moment in American history! This amazing poster features an illustration of the scene inside the bell tower of the Pennsylvania State House in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was first read publicly, and the bells of the colonies rang with joy. The scene has it all: the seriousness of the young minuteman, ringing the bell and accepting the consequences; the young boy and belle, waving with pride to the crowd below; the little girl, simply covering her ears from the noise; and the elder statesman, looking on from the background, knowing that the path ahead will be difficult and painful, and knowing that, for better or for worse, nothing can stop it now. Of course, it was all for the better, and that old bell that ended up cracking and falling into disrepair in the ensuing years, would become one of world freedom's ultimate symbols. A beautiful reproduction of an old illustration originally published by the Pennsylvania Railroad to promote tourism to Philadelphia, here's your chance to add history and glorious freedom to your wall! Amazing quality, rare historic imagery - perfect for the wall of home, office, classroom, or public hall.
