A Historical Reflection
“Lady Liberty” was a Roman goddess of Freedom and Independence. This mesmerizing statue was constructed in September 1875 and opened in October 1886. Lady Liberty was officially declared a national monument in 1924. The tablet in the statue’s hand is inscribed with the date JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (July 4, 1776), when the United States signed the Declaration of Independence. A bronze tablet that hangs in the statue’s pedestal features a famous poem by Emma Lazarus about welcoming immigrants into the country.
Lady Liberty’s crown consists of seven spikes that represent all the oceans and continents of the world. The enthralling torch symbolizes enlightenment that uplifts and inspires societies across the globe by shining rays of hope across the waters. The broken chains at her feet represent tyranny and oppression. The Statue of Liberty was the first sight immigrants saw when arriving in the United States. It is made of a rock-solid iron frame with rugged sheets of copper hanging over it. The color of the statue has turned green from the effect of weather on copper. In 1986, the copper torch flame was replaced with a 24-carat gold-plated torch.
The monument was dedicated to Americans with different interests, cultures, and laws who came together to secure the blessings of liberty for themselves and their posterity. The Statue of Liberty is by far the most iconic symbol of our world because it encompasses the universal concept of liberation. It towers proudly as a beacon of hope to consistently remind us that it is our responsibility to keep Liberty’s light shining for all future generations.
Lady Liberty stands tall at Liberty Island in the New York Harbor. She strategically faces the South-East to act as a welcoming symbol for all the ships that enter the harbor. Her torch lights the way to freedom. The monument was gifted to the US by the French in 1886 to seal their friendship during the American Revolution.
