Pictures: Freedom Bell On The Move

The Freedom bell of Williamsburg’s First Baptist Church travels this month to Washington, D.C. where it will ring during the opening ceremony of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. On Monday, Sept. 12, 2016 the bell was removed from the church bell tower in for the first time in 60 years utilizing a crane, the first step of its historic journey to Washington on Sept. 21, 2016.
