The people of France gave the Statue to the people of the United States over one hundred years ago in recognition of the friendship established during the American Revolution. Over the years, the Statue of Liberty's symbolism has grown to include freedom and democracy as well as this international friendship.
Sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi was commissioned to design a sculpture with the year 1876 in mind for completion, to commemorate the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence. The Statue was a joint effort between America and France and it was agreed upon that the American people were to build the pedestal, and the French people were responsible for the Statue and its assembly here in the United States. However, lack of funds was a problem on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. In France, public fees, various forms of entertainment, and a lottery were among the methods used to raise funds. In the United States, benefit theatrical events, art exhibitions, auctions and prize fights assisted in providing needed funds.
Meanwhile in France, Bartholdi required the assistance of an engineer to address structural issues associated with designing such a colossal copper sculpture. Alexandre Gustave Eiffel (designer of the Eiffel Tower) was commissioned to design the massive iron pylon and secondary skeletal framework which allows the Statue's copper skin to move independently yet stand upright. Back in America, fund raising for the pedestal was going particularly slowly, so Joseph Pulitzer (noted for the Pulitzer Prize) opened up the editorial pages of his newspaper, "The World" to support the fund raising effort. Pulitzer used his newspaper to criticize both the rich who had failed to finance the pedestal construction and the middle class who were content to rely upon the wealthy to provide the funds. Pulitzer's campaign of harsh criticism was successful in motivating the people of America to donate.
Financing for the pedestal was completed in August 1885, and pedestal construction was finished in April of 1886. The Statue was completed in France in July, 1884 and arrived in New York Harbor in June of 1885 on board the French frigate "Isere" which transported the Statue of Liberty from France to the United States. In transit, the Statue was reduced to 350 individual pieces and packed in 214 crates. The Statue was re-assembled on her new pedestal in four months time. On October 28th 1886, the dedication of the Statue of Liberty took place in front of thousands of spectators. She was a centennial gift ten years late.
The story of the Statue of Liberty and her island has been one of change. The Statue was placed upon a granite pedestal inside the courtyard of the star-shaped walls of Fort Wood (which had been completed for the War of 1812.) The United States Lighthouse Board had responsibility for the operation of the Statue of Liberty until 1901. After 1901, the care and operation of the Statue was placed under the War Department. A Presidential Proclamation declared Fort Wood (and the Statue of Liberty within it) a National Monument on October 15th, 1924 and the monument's boundary was set at the outer edge of Fort Wood. In 1933, the care and administration of the National Monument was transferred to the National Park Service. On September 7, 1937, jurisdiction was enlarged to encompass all of Bedloe's Island and in 1956, the island's name was changed to Liberty Island. On May 11, 1965, Ellis Island was also transferred to the National Park Service and became part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. In May of 1982, President Ronald Reagan appointed Lee Iacocca to head up a private sector effort to restore the Statue of Liberty. Fundraising began for the $87 million restoration under a public/private partnership between the National Park Service and The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc., to date the most successful public-private partnership in American history. In 1984, at the start of the Statue's restoration, the United Nations designated the Statue of Liberty as a World Heritage Site. On July 5, 1986 the newly restored Statue re-opened to the public during Liberty Weekend, which celebrated her centennial History of The Statue of Liberty History of The Statue of Liberty Homework......=) 04.05.2010 05.05.2010 Homework.......=) MOLDOVA Estimated population: 4,320,748

Dragos-Voda, "un român destept si voinic din Maramures", caruia îi placea sa vâneze, a pornit într-o zi, împreuna cu haita sa de câini "prin niste codri mari" ca sa ucida "fiare salbatice". "Umbla cât umbla", pâna ce câinii "dibuira" un taur salbatic, cu o înfatisare ciudata. Au început sa alerge dupa "fiara", iar dupa ce au fugarit-o "o zi si o noapte", câinii au început sa se, prabuseasca din pricina oboselii. Mai rezistenta s-a dovedit o catea, care a urmarit în continuare taurul. Ajuns la marginea unei gârle, acesta s-a repezit în apa pentru a trece înot. Molda, asa se numea cateaua, s-a aruncat si ea în apa, insa din cauza oboselii, n-a mai rezistat si s-a înecat. Impresionat si indurerat de pierderea Moldei, Dragos-Voda a aruncat ghioaga sa "cea tintuita cu cuie de fier" drept în capul bourului si l-a omorât. I-a taiat apoi capul pe care l-a luat în semn de trofeu.
Dragos a devenit apoi stapânul acelei tari unde avusese loc vânatoarea. Gârlei în care s-a înecat cateaua i-a dat numele Moldova, ca si tarii, de altfel. Capul bourului a devenit "semnul noii domnii din Moldova".
In aceasta creatie literara, care este o legenda, timpul în care se petrec întâmplarile nu este precizat, actiunea fiind plasata pe vremea lui Dragos-Voda, deci într-un trecut foarte îndepartat. Desi sunt mentionate câteva elemente privind locul, spatiul propriu-zis al întâmplarii nu poate fi precizat. Dragos-Voda porneste din Maramures si strabate "o zi si o noapte" "niste codri mari" pâna la malul "unui râu mare".
Deoarece într-o legenda realitatea se împleteste cu fictiunea în naratiunea "Dragos-Voda întâlnim si elemente de basm.
Eroul se aseamana cu un personaj de basm. Are multe calitati: era un român destept si voinic, iubea vânatoarea, deci era curajos, colinda paduri si codri mari, dovedindu-si neînfricarea. Dragos nu se lasa învins de piedici, urmareste taurul pâna îl ajunge si-l rapune, deci e foarte hotarât în atingerea scopului propus. Isi iubeste foarte mult câinii, care joaca aici rolul ajutoarelor din basm. Tot ca un erou de basm, este înzestrat cu o forta iesita din comun, putând arunca "ghioaga" de la distanta drept în capul bourului pe care-l omoara pe loc.
Bourul, care este o aparitie fabuloasa, "un fel de fiara puternica [...] care fugea ca turbat prin codrii si parea ca are aripi la picioare", poate fi si el un personaj de basm.
Haita de câini [ajutoarele din basm] formeaza un personaj colectiv. Se evidentiaza Molda.
Frecventa verbelor [mai ales de miscare] imprima un ritm alert actiunii.
Trecutul evenimentelor si prezentul povestirii sunt redate prin alternanta timpurilor verbale: "Era un bour sau un zimbru, adica un fel de fiara puternica si mare, ce nu se mai gaseste acum prin tara la noi".
Fiind o creatie populara, în naratiunea "Dragos-Voda" întâlnim adesea cuvinte si expresii populare - "sa uciga", "dibuira", "pierzania", "luara la goana" - precum si expresii neliterare, "tintuita cu cuie de fier".
De remarcat este îmbinarea armonioasa a doua moduri de expunere: naratiunea, folosita în relatarea întâmplarilor si descrierea, care ajuta la realizarea portretelor.
Deoarece in credinta populara "Dragos-Voda" este povestita o intamplare miraculoasa, di care nu lipseste fantasticul-vanatoarea-pentru a se explica originea romaneasca a Moldovei, iar textul se incadreaza schemei traditionale a speciei, aceasta opera literara este o legenda. Topic Legend:
Dragos Voda, "a smart and brave Romanian Maramures, who likes to hunt, started one day, along with his pack of dogs" by some big woods "to kill" wild beasts. " "Walk as He walked" up the dogs' dibuira "a wild bull, with a strange appearance. They started to run after "the beast", and after they chased a "one day and one night," began to dogs, fail because of fatigue. Stronger was a bitch, who still watched the bull. Reached the edge of streams, the water rushed in to go swimming. Molde, so called bitch, and she jumped into the water, but due to fatigue, he did not resist and drowned. Impressed and grieving the loss of Molde, Dragos-Voda threw his mace "iron nails that pinned the" right auroch head and killed him. Then cutting off his head that he got to sign the trophy.
Dragos then became master of that country where hunting occurred. Streams where he drowned bitch named Moldova, as the country also. Cape auroch became "the new rulers of Moldova sign.
This literary creation, which is a legend, when the stories happen is not specified, the action being placed on time Dragos-Voda, so in a very distant past. Although some items are listed on the site, space itself can not be said of chance. Dragos-Voda, Maramures and crosses the start of "one day and one night" some big woods' to shore up "a great river."
As a legend blends with reality in narrative fiction "Dragos Voda meet and elements of fantasy.
Hero is like a fairytale character. Has many qualities Romanian was a smart and brave, loved hunting, so it was brave, wandering forests and high forests, proving his fearlessness. Dragos Keep defeated by obstacles, follow until you reach the bull and destroy it, so is very determined to achieve its intended purpose. He loves dogs very much, which plays here the role of magical aid. Also as a fairy tale hero, is endowed with extraordinary strength, can throw "mace" remote as the head auroch that kill instead.
Stag, which is a fabulous appearance, "a sort of beast who ran as tremendously powerful [...] through the woods and seems to have winged feet, he can be a fairytale character.
Pack of dogs [aid of fairy] form a collective character. Molde stand out.
Frequency verbs [especially the movement] print a fast action.
Past events and this story are played by alternating times word: "It was a bull or an aurochs, a kind of beast that is strong and big, now no longer finds the country in November.
Being a popular creation, the narrative "Dragos Voda" words and phrases often meet people - to "killer", "dibuira", "Perdition", "take the ride" - and expressions neliterare, "pinned with iron nails" .
Noteworthy is the harmonious blending of two exposure modes: narrative, events and descriptions used in the story, which help achieve portraits.
As the folk belief "Dragos-Voda" is the story of a miraculous, not missing di-fantastic-hunt to explain the origin of Romanian Moldavia, and the species fit the traditional scheme, it is a literary legend. MOLDA, CATELUSA LUI DRAGOS VODA
Legenda lui Dragos spune ca numele de Moldova, de Moldavia, vine de la cateaua lui, care a murit la vanatoarea zimbrului. Dragos, indurerat si cu lacrimi in ochi, ar fi numit tara dupa cum isi botezase si cateaua... Moldavia. "Este un fir epic. Termenul de Moldova apare din secolul al XIV-lea in forma de Moldo-Vlahia, deci Valahia Moldoveneasca, pentru ca exista o Unguro-Vlahie, deci ceea ce numim noi Tara Romaneasca", explica istoricul. Legenda spune ca Dragos a botezat un rau cu numele de Moldova, iar de aici si-a luat tara numele. Mold, Puppies'S Dragos Voda
