Getting the statue there was no easy task.
The torch-bearing armÂ was first displayedÂ in Philadelphia at the Centennial Exposition in 1876 and the headÂ was exhibitedÂ at the Paris Worldâ€™s Fair in 1878. The statue was completed in France in 1884, but money was still needed to complete the pedestal in New York. Eventually, a donations drive spearheaded by publisher Joseph Pulitzer attractedÂ over 100,000 contributionsand the pedestal was finished by April 1886.
