The story behind the Statue of Liberty June 26, 2007

Posted by Al in : educational,interesting , trackback

It’s always good to know the story behind the main attraction, and the Statue of Liberty is no exception. Everyone knows she was a gift from the people of France, yet few would know that this was more of a grudging gift than a spontaneous outpouring of public acclaim of the USA. Even fewer are probably aware of the lack of interest shown by the American public, and authorities, when the statue was proposed. It would appear that it was only down to the determination of the creator of the idea, and the beseeching of Joseph Pulitzer, that the Statue of Liberty came to be where she is today.
