Oct. 28 marks the 125th "birthday" of the Statue of Liberty.

The statue, which was formally dedicated in a day of ceremonies on Oct. 28, 1886, was a gift from France to America to recognize the "friendship established during the American Revolution," according to the U.S. National Park Service (NPS). President Grover Cleveland attended the service.
