Liberty Island and its colossal statue by 1905 (Detroit Photographic Co.).

In 1865, Frenchman Édouard de Laboulaye proposed a monumental gift from the people of France to the people of the United States. He moved by the ideals of liberty and freedom in America. French sculptor Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi began conceptualizing the colossal structure that would be known as Liberty Enlightening the World. The tablet, inscribed July 4, 1776, refers to the independence of British colonies in America. The end of slavery is symbolized by a broken shackle and chains at the Statue’s foot.
