On #ThisDayinHistory 1885, the dismantled Statue of Liberty, a gift of friendship from the people of France, arrives in New York Harbor after being shipped across the Atlantic Ocean in 350 individual pieces packed in more than 200 cases #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – June.17: The copper and iron statue, reassembled and dedicated the following year, became known around the world as an enduring symbol of freedom and democracy. In 1892, Ellis Island, located near Bedloe’s Island (now Liberty Island), opened as America’s chief immigration post, and for the next 62 years Lady Liberty, welcomed over 12 million immigrants who sailed into New York Harbor #AceNewsDesk reports

Lazarus’ now-famous words, which include “Give me your tired, your poor/Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” became symbolic of America’s vision of itself as a land of opportunity for immigrants. #LadyLiberty #StatueofLiberty #USHistory #History #OTD #AceHistoryNews
