Revisit Ken Burns's history of the Statue of Liberty and what she represents to all Americans. 

Narrated by David McCullough, the film traces the development of the monument — from its conception to its fascinating and often controversial construction to its final dedication — and offers interviews with a wide range of Americans, including former New York governor Mario Cuomo, the late congresswoman Barbara Jordan and the late writers James Baldwin and Jerzy Kosinski, to explore the meaning of the Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty airs Tuesday, July 2, 2013 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
