Proclaim Liberty

One of the abiding heritage images from the USA is the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia with its message, ‘Proclaim Liberty Throughout All The Land Unto All The Inhabitants Thereof’, a quotation from Leviticus 25:10.

The text is a reminder about all, not some, of the people, and in all the land, not just in parts of it.

The bell is preserved by the National Park Service. It dates to 1753 (MDCCLIII).
