Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty was opened on October 28, 1886 and it enlightened the world as  a sign of friendship. This Statue was a sign of Liberty for France and United States as well. This Liberty Statue was made in France, but the people from France gave the Statue to the people of United States over one hundred year ago in recognition of the friendship established during the American Revolution.  This statue can be different sings for many people. In the United States it has symbolism always been a symbol of freedom and democracy.

Many people emigrated in the 1800s  to the United States, all these immigrants escaped from persecution or wars in their countries. Once they arrived in the United States, they found Liberty and became free. I think all these people from different countries thought that this was a free country and they were right because United States was a free country.  The reason why European immigrants came to the East coast of America in the late 1800s to early 1900s was for job opportunities, but at first the living conditions were not that great for them in the cities.  Over time this improved and America has become a mix of immigrants from every place on earth.
