The Statue of Liberty
Transcript of The Statue of Liberty
The statue was built by French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi. The pedestal on which the statue was going to be standing on was done after the actual statue itself. The pedestal was done in April 1886 and the actual statue was done in France in July 1884. This was because the pedestal had to be paid for by the Americans themselves. Three hundred and fifty individual pieces of the statue had to be packed into two hundred fourteen crates to be shipped from France to New York.

The statue was restored for her centennial on July 4,1986. Workers repaired holes in the copper skin and removed layers of paint from the inside and the internal iron structure. They replaced rusting iron bars with stainless steel bars. The torch was removed and replaced.When it was being restored the new torch was carefully covered with thin sheets of 24kt gold.

Did you Know ?
Freedom is not standing still. A symbolic feature that people can't see is the broken chain wrapped around her feet. It symbolizes her free forward movement, enlightening the world with her torch free from oppression and servitude.
What does this Statue mean to society?
I am interested in the Statue of Liberty because I have seen it so many times in movies and other things that it made me want to know the whole story behind it. Learning all of these interesting facts has given me a whole new perspective on this great piece of art work that means so much to this country. I have enjoyed
this topic and I hope you did too.
This statue means a whole lot to society. It does because it is a great symbol of freedom. I think it also symbolizes this country's independence from Great Britain. This statue is also very important because a lot of people put their money, hard work, and time into building this statue. The Statue of Liberty will forever be important to America.
The Statue of Liberty compared and
contrasted to the american flag and freedom itself.
1. The Statue of Liberty represents freedom.
2. They are both something this country would not be right without.
3. The Statue of Liberty also represents the United States and the United States represents freedom for all citizens.
1. Freedom is not something touchable or visible.
2. Freedom is a right but the Statue of Liberty is not.
3. With freedom you are allowed to act, speak, or think how you want; the statue can not do any of those things.
1. They are both symbols of freedom and justice.
2. They both represent the United States and what the United States stands for.
3. They are both equally important to the people of this nation.
1. The american flag has more copies of it than the Statue of Liberty.
2. The Statue of Liberty is bigger, heavier, and in one specific location.
3. The Statue of Liberty is worth more than an american flag (if it has 50 stars)
