Liberator of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Panamá.
Born: Caracas, Venezuela
July 24, 1783

"I prefer the title of Citizen to that of Liberator, because while the latter has its origin in War, the former has been created by the law of the Land."
Simón Bolívar, October 3, 1821

"...Liberator...a name given by both the Old World and the New, to the man whose influence is equaled only by his abnegation and in whose heart is a boundless love of liberty and all-powerful, unreserved devotion to the Republic."
Lafayette, in a letter to Simón Bolívar, dated September 1, 1825.

On May 4, 1991, this statue of Simón Bolívar, by the Venezuelan sculptor Silvestre Chacón, was donated to the city of Tulsa by Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A., in accordance with the recommendation of the Venezuelan Consulate in Houston, Texas.
