Sound The Great Bell

Sound The Great Bell

Broadcast: July 3, 1951
Added: Jul 04 2015

The principals for which it stands have become magnified in the years since it was cast, and today, by presidential proclamation, we rededicate ourselves to the principals of the Declaration of Independence. Two hundred and thirty nine years ago, a young man stood outside a Philadelphia house. His name was Thomas Jefferson, and he was looking for lodgings.
