The Liberty Bell

William Ross Wallace

1450 pages
Library of Alexandria
A sound like the sound of a tempest rolled, And the heart of a people stirred, For the bell of freedom at midnight tolled, Through a fettered land was heard; And the chime still rung From its iron tongue, Steadily swaying to and fro; And to some it came As a breath of flame, And to some as a sound of woe. Rung in Philadelphia upon the announcement of the Declaration of Independence, July 4th. 1776.
