Summary:
A symbol of freedom and democracy towering above the New York Harbor, she has welcomed the tired, the poor, and the huddled masses into America for more than 100 years.

Authoritative and richly detailed, THE STATUE OF LIBERTY explores the remarkable steps leading to its creation, from the initial struggles to find adequate funding to its celebratory centennial restoration. Rare footage and archival photos document the radical methods the French devised for shaping the massive sculpture and for transporting their incredible creation to America. Discover the engineering marvel of its internal framework, designed by Gustave Eiffel, and the dimensions of its American-built pedestal. Finally, after measuring the length of her index finger (8 feet), take a historical tour of the island on which it stands.

Originally a friendly gesture between nations, the "Mother of Exiles" stands today and into a new millennium as a testament to human ingenuity, freedom, and hope.

DVD Features: Save Our History: Ellis Island; Statue of Liberty Facts; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection
