Liberty Bell Replicas
In 1950 Harry S Truman had 55 full-sized replicas of the Liberty Bell cast and shipped as gifts to each state and territory of the United States and the District of Columbia to be displayed and rung on patriotic occasions. One was also given to Truman's hometown of Independence, MO and one to Annecy-le-Vieux, France, where the bells were cast in the Paccard Foundry.
