Happy Birthday, USA!

Posted by Jody on July 4, 2013

New York City, New York

~And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

America the Beautiful – Words by Katharine Lee Bates

Statue of Liberty trivia: “At the time of its dedication in 1886, President Grover Cleveland placed the Statue of Liberty under the administration of the U.S. Lighthouse Board, since it was categorized as a federal lighthouse. Although the Statue’s torch had been electrified for use as a lighthouse in 1886, the Statue had not been designed for this purpose and was not very effective. In 1901, the Statue was transferred to the U.S. Department of War.” (National Park Service)  Lady Liberty has been maintained by the National Park Service since 1933.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!

      🙂 When I was last in New York City, it was my husband’s first time seeing the Statue of Liberty. He thought it would be a lot bigger in person. ~I’m with you! It’s always a thrill for me as both of my grandmothers came over on ships from European nations.
