The Statue of Liberty is a great symbol of the freedom and the democracy of the United States. The monument was presented as a gift to the United States by France in 1886 to celebrate the kinship the two endured during the American Revolution. The statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886.
Located in the Upper New York Bay, Liberty Island is home to the Statue of Liberty and was named a U.S. National Monument in 1937 under decree by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Statue of Liberty was named a National Monument in 1924 and placed in the care of the National Park Service.
Frederic Auguste Bartholdi was commissioned to design the statue which was to be a joint effort between the United States and France. France would build and design the Statue while United States would complete the pedestal that would hold Lady Liberty. Bartholdi needed an engineer to assist with the structural issues in designing the sculpture so Alexandre Gustave Eiffel who designed the Eiffel Tower provided assistance with getting the Statue to stand upright.
