The Statue of Liberty

Post  Ophirkes on Tue Nov 11, 2014 5:40 pm

The Statue of Liberty was a combined effort between the United States and France. It was built to commemorate/show the “lasting” relationship that these two countries shared. The statue of Liberty was sculpted by a French sculptor using hammered sheets of copper. This statue is named after Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel, who designed the statue’s steel framework. The Statue of Liberty was given to the United States and was put on the Liberty Island, due to the name, which was given afterwards; it was dedicated by President Grover Cleveland in 1886.
Over the years, millions of people went to visit this amazing statue; not only for the looks, but also for the history behind it and how it was moved from places. Its original color was the color of copper, which is a metal, but with the years, and since it is located next to sea water, the color changed into a green metal and so, it is known for the color as well for what it actually is. Today, the Statue of Liberty remains and represents a symbol to the United States, in particular. It shows the symbol of freedom and democracy.
