Maria Bomersbach, Washington Memorial Heritage President and Chair, Justice Bell 2020, and Peter Adams, WMH Board and Development Committee Member, kicked of the new series with a conversation on The Justice Bell, one of the great treasures found at the Washington Memorial Chapel and National Patriots Bell Tower.  Commissioned in 1915 by Katherine Wentworth Ruschenberger, it is a 2,000 pound replica of the Liberty Bell, with the addition 13 stars for the original colonies and the inscription, Establish Justice.  Adopted by the Women’s Suffragist movement, the bell traveled the country raising support for women’s voting.   Katherine willed the Justice Bell to the Washington Memorial Heritage where it remains today.  On August 25, 2020, the 100th anniversary celebration of the ratification of the 19th Amendment will kick off at Freedoms Foundation. Following a special jump performed by nationally acclaimed female skydivers of The Highlight Pro Team, the bell will be christened with a champagne bottle for its journey to Philadelphia. The all-female team will then lead a caravan down the road to the National Patriots Bell Tower at the Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge National Historical Park where an old-fashioned suffrage program will take place. The Centennial Commemoration will ensue the next day on August 26 in front of Independence National Historic Park where the bell will be unchained and rung ceremoniously with music, dignitaries, and speakers. The Justice Bell will remain on display in close proximity to the Liberty Bell until after Constitution Day, September 17, 2020.
