The new season of Blue Bloods on CBS is in full swing, and fans could not be more excited about it. One of the stars, Bridget Moynahan, took time away from the show to give an awesome shoutout to the Statue of Liberty.
She tweeted, “Happy Birthday, #SOL! Looking great at 135. #statueofliberty #merci.”
Moynahan tweeted this out because it is indeed the SOL’s birthday.
Why the shoutout? Well, October 28 is the birthday of America’s beauty in New York City. For the history buffs, you certainly might be familiar with this date in 1886 when the Statue of Liberty made her mark on American soil. France gave the statue to America, if you recall, and it was sculpted by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi. However, what about the metal framework? Well, Gustave Eiffel built it. Bartholdi and Eiffel provided the United States with a beautiful sculpture.
More Statue Of Liberty Factoids
“The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World” was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was designated as a National Monument in 1924. Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933.
National Parks are a wonderful aspect of the United States of America. It is easy to overlook the monument as a national park, but the area is. Without the NPS, there would be nobody there to take care of it.
