The Statue of Liberty is one of six symbols that is recognized by the Library of Congress as an official symbol of America.

The Statue of Liberty stands in New York Harbor and for many years has greeted hundreds of thousands of people, especially immigrants who see the United States for the first time, yet it was not built by Americans, it was a gift of celebration. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from the French people commemorating the alliance of France and the United States during the American Revolutionary War. If not for the French involvement, it was doubtful the colonists could have completed the separation from Great Britain.

The Statue of Liberty is recognized as a symbol of American freedom for all who see her. Also known also as “Lady Liberty”, she has become one of the most famous icons in all the world. In her hand, lifted high above her head she holds a torch that symbolizes enlightenment. The Statue of Liberty's torch lights the way to freedom showing us the path to Liberty. Even the Statue's official name represents her most important symbol "Liberty, enlightening the World".

Raising the funds to build the statue was an enormous undertaking, especially in the United States because many did not see the need for it. Finally, through the efforts of Joseph Pulitzer enough money was raised through the American public to build the statue.
