Commissioned by the Pennsylvania Assembly in 1751, the Liberty Bell cracked shortly after its arrival in Philadelphia. Local foundry men, Pass and Stow, recast the bell using the original metal. Their names appear on the front of the bell along with the biblical inscription from Leviticus 25:10, "Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof."
