State of Liberty: 125 Years
Tomorrow is the 125th birthday of the Statue of Liberty. I may do my morning run down in Battery Park, to give her a nod.
Newspapers described the event as full of mystery and eeriness, "[T]he nearest of the men-of-war could be seen floating like phantoms on what might either have been fog or water so far as the eye could see."
Given the era, it comes as no surprise that although the celebration is for massive feminine statue, less than one dozen of the 2500 guests were women!
