On this date, The Statue of Liberty, a gift to the people of the United States from the people of France, was dedicated. In 1924, Lady Liberty was designated a national monument and in 1986, she was restored for the centennial. When dedicated in 1886, President Grover Cleveland said that “Liberty” would “magnify France beyond the seas”.(http://www.nps.gov/stli/index.htm). After the dedication, fireworks and New York’s first ever ‘Ticker Tape’ parade celebrated the event.
