What an amazing story! You should send this to the Boston Globe to have them publish it! Nobody knows this!

Not sure how many know the facts. The ones who do know haven't pro-actively contradicted the popular narrative people like you and me have believed for so long. The reason I wrote the story is to set the record straight.

Paul I think you bought into a liberal agenda. Many have claimed various reasons for and meaning of the Statue, however it's original meaning and reason was to comemorate the friendship between France and the US in their struggle for Liberty (Freedom). The Statue of Liberty. Liberty as a human endeavor striving for an ideal, not specific to one group or cause.

Paul A. Tamburello, Jr. aka pt at large

Not doubting that France and America have historically bonded over the ideal of freedom. Quoting from the Statue of Liberty Museum: "Recognizing the need to focus on more than just the vague and often dubious ideal of American “liberty,” the museum’s designers highlight the doubts of black Americans and women who saw their personal liberties compromised on a daily basis in the 1880s, when the statue opened. They also spotlight a bit of history that is often forgotten: that the French creators intended the statue as a commemoration of the abolition of slavery in the United States."
