Historic Patent: The Statue of Liberty

| Category: Firm News

The Liberty Enlightening the World, or what is known as the Statue of Liberty, is a monument symbolizing the United States. The people of France gave the United States the statue to represent the friendship between the two countries that was established during the American Revolution. The statue commemorates the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence. It is placed on Liberty Island, near the entrance of the New York City harbor. Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi who designed the Statue of Liberty, was granted a U.S. design patent for his masterpiece in 1879 which would become a national monument.
