The ''Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World'' was given to the people of the United States by the people of France in recognition of a friendship established during the American Revolution.
Designed by Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi, the Statue is constructed of thin sheets of copper, no thicker than two pennies placed together, over a massive iron pylon and skeletal framework which was engineered by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel.
The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a national monument in 1924, and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986. Over the years, the Statue has become an international icon of freedom and liberty, the most recognizable symbol of democracy in the world.
