For many immigrants coming to the United States in the early 1900’s, the sight of the Statue of Liberty, as their boats passed Ellis Island, meant the start of a new life, in a new country – where anything was possible. "Lady Liberty," as she is often called, is a bronze statue that represents the Roman goddess Libertas, who represents liberty. She stands 305 feet tall and remains an international symbol of peace and liberty. She is one of America’s iconic symbols and is honored on U.S. coins and countless postage stamps.

The Statue of Liberty was designed by F.A.Bartholdi, and given to America as a gift of friendship from France in celebration of America’s 100th birthday on October 28, 1886. Upon completion, the Statue of Liberty was honored as part of New York City’s first ticker-tape parade and was dedicated by president Grover Cleveland.
