★ The Statue of Liberty was a gift to the people of the United States by the people of France.

★ As a symbol of friendship between the two nations, the statue also commemorated the 100th anniversary of American independence.

★ Building of the Statue of Liberty started in 1875, and the cost of the project was shared between France and America as it was soon realized that it would be extremely expensive.

★ The construction of the Statue of Liberty was finally complete in 1884 & was dismantled and shipped to New York, where it arrived in 1885 inside 214 wooden packing crates. 

★ Reassembly and construction of the pedestal took six months, and the Statue was finally unveiled on October 28, 1886.
