        Images of "Lady Liberty" | Ken Burns: The Statue of Liberty

        View a variety of images of the Statue of Liberty, a copper statue that stands on Liberty Island in the New York City Harbor. It serves as an enduring symbol of freedom, of those who have come before us, those “who have cared immensely to the depth of their soul to achieve liberty,” explained historian David McCullough. The statue was a gift from France, designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel. It was dedicated on October 28, 1886. Liberty holds a torch high above her head and carries a tablet with the date of the Declaration of Independence on it: July 4, 1776.
