(Before It's News)

We remember another anniversary of The Statue of Liberty:

“On this day in 1886, President Grover Cleveland dedicates the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor.
The statue’s full name was Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World. It had been a gift from French citizens to their American friends in recognition of the two countries’ commitment to liberty and democracy and their alliance during the American Revolutionary War, which had begun 110 years earlier. 
The 151-foot copper statue was built in France and shipped to New York in 350 separate parts. 
It arrived in the city on June 17, 1886, and over the next several months was reassembled while electricians worked to wire the torch to light up at night.”

It is one of the country’s great landmarks.
