The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, after more than twenty years of planning, fund raising, and construction.
Kevin will explain how she was built and what she symbolizes, and introduce some of the people involved in her creation, including sculptor Frederic Bartholdi, engineer Gustave Eiffel, architect Richard Morris Hunt, and newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer.
The program ends with brief histories of Ellis Island and Liberty State Park.
The slide show includes Kevin's original photographs of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Liberty State Park, and New York City, plus vintage images of historic people, places, and events.
