In Philadelphia, the Liberty Bell rings out from the tower of the Pennsylvania State House (now known as Independence Hall), summoning citizens to the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence, by Colonel John Nixon.  On July 4, the historic document was adopted by the delegates to the Continental Congress meeting in the State House.  However, the Liberty Bell was not rung until the Declaration of Independence returned from the printer on July 8.
