INDEPENDENCE BELL- JULY 4, 1776There was tumult in the city,/In the quaint old Quaker town, And the streets were rife with people/Pacing restless up and down; People gathering at the corners,/Where they whispered each to each, And the sweat stood on their temples/With the earnestness of speech./As the bleak Atlantic currents/Lash the wild Newfoundland shore, So they beat against the State House,/So they surged against the door; And the mingling of their voices/Made the harmony profound, Till the quiet street of Chestnut/Was all turbulent with sound./"Will they do it?" "Dare they do it?" "Who is speaking?" "What's the news?" "What of Adams?" "What of Sherman?"/"Oh, God grant they won't refuse!" "Make some way there!" "Let me nearer!"/"I am stifling!" "Stifle, then! When a nation's life's at hazard,/We've no time to think of men!"/So they surged against the State House,/While all solemnly inside, Sat the "Continental Congress," Truth and reason for their guide; O'er a simple scroll debating, Which, though simple it might be, Yet should shake the cliffs of England/With the thunders of the free./Far aloft in that high steeple/Sat the bellman, old and gray; He was weary of the tyrant/And his iron-sceptered sway: So he sat, with one hand ready/On the clapper of the bell, When his eye could catch the signal, The expected news to tell./See! See! The dense crowd quivers/Through all its lengthy line, As the boy beside the portal/Hastens forth to give the sign!/With his little hands uplifted,/Breezes dallying with his hair— Hark! with deep, clear intonation,/Breaks his young voice on the air./Hushed the people's swelling murmur,/Whilst the boy cries joyously: "Ring!" he shouts, "Ring, grandpapa!/Ring! oh, ring for Liberty!" Quickly, at the given signal,/The old bellman lifts his hand; Forth he sends the good news, making/Iron music through the land./How they shouted! What rejoicing!/How the old bell shook the air, Till the clang of freedom ruffled/The calmly gliding Delaware! How the bonfires and the torches/Lighted up the night's repose, And from flames, like fabled Phoenix,/Our glorious liberty arose!/That old State House bell is silent,/Hushed is now its clamorous tongue; But the spirit it awakened/Still is living—ever young: And when we greet the smiling sunlight/On the Fourth of each July, We will ne'er forget the bellman/ Who, betwixt the earth and sky,/Rang out, loudly, "Independence!"/Which, please God, shall never die!/~ANONYMOUS

YIPPEE!!! I can't believe I've found a connection to a Signer!! It's not signigicant, but it's still a connection. Stephen HOPKINS is a Third Cousin, 7 Times Removed. Our common tie is his Third Great Grandparents, Christopher SMITH and Alice (_____) SMITH, while they are my Ninth Great Grandparents. He descends from their daughter Susanna (SMITH) WILKINSON, then her son, Samuel WILKINSON, then to his daughter, Ruth (WILKINSON) HOPKINS. I also am related to Ruth's brother-in-law, James ANGELL, husband of Susannah (WILKINSON) ANGELL, Thomas ANGELL, one of the 6 original settlers to Rhode Island, is my Ninth Great Grandfather. HAPPY, HAPPY DAY!!!
