New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Edouard Rene De Laboulaye
(1811 – 1883)
He conceived this monument, showing the love of Liberty shared by France and America. This statue would be a gift from a people to a people. It was intended for the 1876 Centennial, but was delayed until 1886. De Laboulaye never saw his dream realized.
