Today, months worth of planning came to fruition as we commemorated the service of WWI veterans. Special programs included a special ringing of the Centennial Bell atop Independence Hall as part of the Bells of Peace Remembrance event - a nationwide tolling of bells.

The Second National Bank is a beautiful structure, and these Autumn colors only accentuate that, but inside are equally beautiful portraits of 18th people. These includes the many veterans (seen in our last post) that we will be honoring this holiday weekend. Open 11am to 5pm.

Today I asked our Rangers to name their favorite Revolutionary War veteran. These men had the most votes. Who do you recognize?
Visit our Second Bank Portrait Gallery this weekend (11am-5pm) where you can see these portraits. Also stop by the visitor center to learn about special programs we will offer to commemorate Veterans Day, including unique programs remembering WWI veterans.
