Summary The Statue of Liberty pays homage to what is best about America, but it was the idea of two Frenchmen who lived under the harsh rule of Emperor Napoleon III. Edouard Laboulaye and Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi wanted to remind their countrymen that tyranny is not inevitable, that citizens have rights which no government can take from them. It took two decades of planning, fundraising, and building for their dreams to cross the ocean And now the statue inspires people all over the world..
