Default Liberty Enlightens the October 28 Chat Thread

The Statue of Liberty, known officially as “Liberty Enlightening the World,” celebrates her birthday on October 28th in honor of the day she was officially accepted by the president of the United States in 1886. The Statue of Liberty was built by French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi, with the help of tons of workers working ten hour days, seven days a week for nine years! The statue was finally finished in 1884 and presented to America on July 4th. It didn't arrive in the United States until many months later though, cuz all 350 individual pieces of the statue had to be packed into 214 crates for the long boat ride from France to New York.

It was on Bedloe Island that the Statue of Liberty was reconstructed in America - the island is now called Liberty Island and is only accessible by ferry. Auguste Bartholdi thought that the New York harbor was the perfect setting for his masterpiece because it was "where people get their first view of the New World." The statue was to be a symbol of welcome for all immigrants coming to America, as well as a universal symbol of freedom.


Did you know:

~Visitors must climb 354 stairs to reach the Statue of Liberty's crown (or take an elevator to a lower lookout point).
~There are 25 windows in Lady Liberty's crown.
~There are seven rays on her crown, one for each of the seven continents, each measuring up to 9 feet in length and weighing as much as 150 pounds
~The statue is made of copper and is now green in color because of oxidation (a chemical reaction between metal and water) from evaporation of the seawater surrounding it.
~The Staue of Liberty weighs 450,000 pounds (204, 100 kilograms).
~The Statue of Liberty has size 879 sandals that are each 25 feet (7.6m) long.
~A tablet held in her left hand measures 23' 7" tall and 13' 7" wide inscribed with the date JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (July 4, 1776)
~Total overall height from the base of the pedestal foundation to the tip of the torch is 305 feet, 6 inches
~Total weight of the Statue of Liberty is 225 tons (or 450,000 pounds)
~At the feet of the Statue lie broken shackles of oppression and tyranny
~During the restoration completed in 1986, the new torch was carefully covered with thin sheets of 24k gold
~The exterior copper covering of the Statue of Liberty is 3/32 of an inch thick (less than the thickness of two pennies) and the light green color (called a patina) is the result of natural weathering of the copper
