—President Grover Cleveland accepting the Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty stands in Upper New York Bay, a universal symbol of freedom. Originally conceived as an emblem of the friendship between the people of France and the U.S. and a sign of their mutual desire for liberty.

The idea of Mt. Rushmore was conceived in 1924 by State Historian Doane Robinson. He believed that carved faces of western heroes would attract more visitors to the area. After a lengthly lobbying period, in which he tried to persuade government officials to allow and support this art, the Mt. Rushmore project began on October 4, 1927 by Gutzon Borglum.
The Statue of Liberty was given to the United States by France in 1884. It was a symbol of friendship and liberty that both countries shared. France and the United States both shared its expense. A French sculptor, Fredric Auguste Bartholdi, designed it and chose its location. The Statue of Liberty is a symbol that expresses freedom to people all over the world. Her crown bears seven spikes representing the light of liberty on the seven seas and seven continents. In her left arm she holds a tablet with the date of the Declaration of Independence. A broken chain at her feet represents the brokenness of a dictatorship. Millions of immigrants were "greeted" by her as they entered the United States seeking freedom and opportunity.
Pledge of Allegiance
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
