1. Strengthen the Arm of Liberty. Strengthen the Arm of Liberty was the Boy Scouts of America's theme for the organization's fortieth anniversary celebration in 1950. The campaign was inaugurated in February with a dramatic ceremony held at the base of the Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World). Approximately 200 BSA Statue of Liberty replicas were installed across the United States. (Submitted on January 11, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)

3. Statue of Liberty Plaque with Emma Lazarus quote (mounted on pedestal below marker)
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

5. Georgia State Capitol "Miss Freedom" Statue
(interpretive exhibit inside the Capitol)
On top of the Capitol dome stands Miss Freedom, a statue of a female figure who clasps a sword in her left hand and holds a lighted torch in her right.

Miss Freedom is often mistaken for the Statue of Liberty, but the two statues are not the same. Although both symbolize freedom, the Statue of Liberty has a different headdress and carries a book rather than a sword.

The liberty cap she wears is like those worn by ex-slaves or freedmen in ancient Rome. During the French Revolution patriots wore the liberty cap as a symbol of freedom from a repressive government.

Liberty at the Capitol
The Georgia State Capitol has its own Statue of Liberty. The Atlanta Council of Boy Scouts presented this small-scale reproduction to the state and placed it on the northwest corner of the Capitol grounds in February 1951.
