Description

After the US Civil War, the French historian Edouard de Laboulaye floated the idea of creating a large monument to honor the success of the United States in creating a democracy. 

Almost 20 years later, after significant time in fundraising, design, and construction, the new statue was unveiled to the public in New York Harbor. 

Since then, the gift of France has become a symbol not just of New York but of the United States and has inspired other similar statues around the world.
