The History of the Statue of Liberty

As you might already know, the Statue of Liberty was actually a gift from the French people to the people of the United States. So what made the French want to build a big statue and give it to the U.S.? Well, it all began when a popular Frenchman named Laboulaye said at a dinner party, “If a monument should rise in the United States, as a memorial to their independence, I should think it only natural if it were built by united effort – a common work of both our nations.” (Today, Labouyale might have said, “If somebody wants to build a big statue in the United States, to celebrate their freedom, I think it’s a good idea we help ‘em out.”)

Why Do We Celebrate the 4th of July?

Most people in the United States celebrate the 4th of July, but do you know exactly why the holiday is so important to our country? Imagine how you would feel if someone older than you (maybe an older sister or brother) kept telling you what to do all of the time and kept taking more and more of your allowance. That is how the colonists felt in the years leading up to 1776. Great Britain kept trying to make the colonists follow more rules and pay higher taxes. People started getting mad and began making plans to be able to make their own rules. They no longer wanted Great Britain to be able to tell them what to do, so they decided to tell Great Britain that they were becoming an independent country. (To be independent means to take care of yourself, making your own rules and providing for your own needs.)
