“Since the war on terrorism began in Afghanistan and Iraq I have tolled the “Nations only exact replica traveling Liberty Bell” at over 500 funerals for our active duty, Killed in Action Military Heroes.”
We have received word that David Hall, the ‘Belladier’, has died. The notice, with details of the arrangements for friends and family, is here –http://www.proclaimliberty.us/blog/
For those who do not know of his devoted work in the name of liberty, here is a brief account of his personal mission, taken from his own statements which are listed at the following site.
My name is David Hall, Belladier Posted on March 12, 2011 by claire
My name is David Hall. I am the Belladier, the keeper of the Bell. Do not look up Belladier in the dictionary. It’s not there, yet. I created the word to describe what I do as I created the Liberty & Law Memorial to honor those individuals who protect our laws, our treaties and people at home and around the world. We are the “Land of the Free” because of the Brave. The traveling Liberty Bell tolls today as Bells have tolled for over 500 years honoring heroes who have laid down their lives for their countrymen. The Liberty Bell, the sacred icon of 1753, tolled for our Founding Fathers: Benjamin Franklin-1790, George Washington-1799, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson-1826. My wife, Phyllis, and I have traveled through England and Europe; visited many Bell sites and studied their traditions as well as the concluding honors afforded our Heroes in America over the past 250 years.
Since the war on terrorism began in Afghanistan and Iraq I have tolled the “Nations only exact replica traveling Liberty Bell” at over 500 funerals for our active duty, Killed in Action Military Heroes. I realize, as many of you, the Cost of Freedom paid by our sons and daughters for this Nation is high, and that it is our duty to pay tribute for these great sacrifices. We as a Nation can never forget the price they paid for our Liberty. I meet the families of our Fallen, and they too understand this high cost. We as fellow Americans need to hold them in our arms while God comforts their hearts. In fulfilling this duty my life becomes richer and more meaningful because of these families and their American Heroes….

Here is a brief history of the bell:
The Daughters of the American Revolution (D.A.R.) commissioned seventy exact replica Liberty Bells to be made to supply the need for bells for the bicentennial of the Declaration of Independence. This Bell was purchased by the Fort Worth Vietnam veterans for a war memorial for those who gave their last full measure of devotion for liberty in Vietnam.The Tarrant county fathers failed to uphold their promise to place the bell in downtown Fort Worth until the veterans agreed to render the bell mute suggesting it be filled with concrete. The veterans refused to be party to silencing the Liberty Bell. They decided to allow the bell to be used where the freedom for which they fought would be honored.The Associated Conservatives of Texas purchased the Bell in 2002 after displaying the bell for ten years. The Liberty Bell is of the same size and weight so the sound produced will be the same as that heard by our founding fathers.Benjamin Franklin wrote in 1775,
“Adieu. The Bell rings and I must go among Grave Ones, and talk politiks (as spelled in 1775).”
The same sound that called every meeting to order at the Pennsylvania State House, and inspired the men who wrote the Articles of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of the United States can be heard today by ringing this bell.
David Hall has now passed.
