The Liberty Bell.
It was built in New York Harbor in 1886. It was a gift from the people of France to America. About 12 million immigrants passed through New York when they came to America. It was the symbol of friendship between two countries. Now it is America’s symbol of freedom. (3)
It is one of the most beautiful places in the capital of the USA. It is the part where the President of the USA lives and works and it is not open to the public. It consists of 132 rooms. You can visit the library, the Red Room, the Blue Room and the Green Room which have some fantastic old furniture. (2)
It is rang out in July 1776 in Philadelphia, when the Declaration of Independence was signed by Congress. It rang out at every event of national importance until it cracked in 1835. Now it is on display in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, but it never rings. It weighs over a ton and it is 12 feet wide at the bottom. (5)
It is the center of the theater in New York. The lights from all the theaters and advertisements are very bright. On the New Year’s Eve on the 31 of December crowds of people stand in it and wait for midnight. At midnight everyone shouts, “Happy New Year!” to everyone else. (4)
It was made by Betsy Ross during the War of Independence on January 1, 1776. It had 7 red and 6 white stripes for the 13 American colonies, and there were 13 stars in the field of blue in the corner. Now it has 50 stars for the 50 states. But the number of stripes is the same-13. (1)
