Inscription
This reproduction of the Liberty Bell was presented to the people of
Virginia
by direction of
The Honorable John W. Snyder
Secretary of the Treasury
As the inspirational symbol of the
United States Savings Bonds Independence Drive
from May 16 to July 4,1950, it was displayed in
every part of this state
The dimensions and tone are identical
with those of the original Liberty bell when it
rang out our independence in 1776.
In standing before this symbol, you have the
opportunity to dedicate yourself,
as did our founding fathers, to the principles
of the individual freedom for which our Nation stands.

This bell is one of fifty-three cast in France in 1950,
and given to the United States Government by:

American Smelting and Refining Company · Anaconda Copper Mining Company · Kennecott Copper Corporation · Miami Copper Company · Phelps Dodge Corporation · The American Metal Company, Limited · Steel supports by U. S. Steel Corporation's American Bridge Company · This plaque donated by Revere Copper and Brass Incorporated
