Based on careful research, this is the story of 11-year-old John Jacob Mickley and how he helped hide the liberty bell from the British by sneaking it out of Philidelphia. The bell was buried under straw in the family wagon, transported to Northampton Towne, and eventually hidden under the floorboards of the Zion Reformed Church.
