1 Non-fiction: Immigration The Statue of Liberty Immigration The Statue of Liberty Illustration by Lynn M. Hanousek In 1884, the people of France gave the Statue of Liberty to the United States. It was a great gift of friendship. The copper statue symbolized 1 the ideal 2 of liberty shared by both peoples. French people donated the money to build the statue. In the United States, people raised the funds to build the foundation 3 and pedestal. 4 The famous figure of a robed woman holding a torch is one the largest statues ever built. It reaches a height of over 300 feet. The statue s complete name is Liberty Enlightening the World. The French sculptor, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, designed the statue and chose its site at the mouth of New York Harbor. The great poet Emma Lazarus wrote about the Statue of Liberty. This poem entitled The New Colossus is inscribed 5 on a plaque inside the lower level of the statue s pedestal.

From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. 1 symbolized stood for, represented 2 ideal goal, standard of excellence 3 foundation a solid structure on which something is built 4 pedestal a base for a statue 5 inscribed written or engraved on stone, paper, or other material 1
