The French ally and the American Revolution

Quite often We hear People down play France and it's culture .France on the other hand especially during it's colonization of the New World always seemed to be a bit more humane towards it's Citizens of Color.

Haiti of course was itself an exception because of the Fight for Independence..But above all France even though it lost most of Canada and it's North American territories has always come to the aid of the American People...It's greatest contribution was it's Military help in America's war of Independence...

Without it America would not have succeeded in it's struggle with Great Britain


The Capital Building... Designed By a Frenchman


America probably could not have won its freedom from the British during the American Revolution without the help of the French. France provided arms, ships, money and men to the American colonies.

Some Frenchmen - most notably the Marquis de Lafayette, a close friend of George Washington - even became high-ranking officers in the American army. It was an alliance of respect and friendship that the French would not forget.


General paragraph source

The Statue of Liberty



The statue is of a robed woman (i.e. goddess) holding a torch, and is made of a sheeting of pure copper, hung on a framework of steel (originally puddled iron) with the exception of the flame of the torch, which is coated in gold leaf (originally made of copper and later altered to hold glass panes).

It stands atop a rectangular stonework pedestal with a foundation in the shape of an irregular eleven-pointed star. The statue is 151 ft (46 m) tall, but with the pedestal and foundation, it is 305 ft (93 m) tall.


The Capital Building... Designed By a Frenchman


Worldwide, the Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognizable icons of the United States[10] and was, from 1886 until the jet age, often one of the first glimpses of the United States for millions of immigrants after ocean voyages from Europe.

Visually, the Statue of Liberty appears to draw inspiration from il Sancarlone or the Colossus of Rhodes.
