Liberty Arrives--How America's Grandest Statue Found Her Home

Liberty Arrives--How America’s Grandest Statue Found Her Home by Robert Byrd is the story of the statue’s design, execution, shipment and final placement in New York Harbor, where she has greeted millions of immigrants since her dedication in 1886. When she first arrived she remained in crates while money was raised for her pedestal. That effort was essentially the first crowdfunding campaign, spearheaded by Joseph Pulitzer in his newspaper The World. Fascinating historical details are cleverly integrated with illustrations of the whole process.
