This history of the Statue of Liberty begins with its dedication on October 28, 1886. The statue's roots are then traced back to France in 1865 when the idea for such a monument was first conceived. The efforts of the sculptor, Frederick Auguste Bartholdi, and the construction of the statue are detailed as well as the difficulties Americans had in raising funds for the building of its base. Following an account of the statue's arrival in New York, the article ends with the famous inscription which was added in 1903. (DC)
