Liberty Bell - Seattle - July 14th, 1915 ~ Curtis-Miller Photo ~ Vintage Postcard

This picture wants to make me cry... Every time I look at it, I am just so impressed that such a glorious symbol of America made its way across our great land all because a few California school-children wrote letters to Philadelphia requesting the Liberty Bell for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. It travelled over 10,000 miles and Seattle was on the route! Amazing... this should recreated for the 100th anniversary.

Hey Statesmen, you have seven years to plan for this... do it for the good of our People!
