The website, "This Day In History", documented the following:
On August 11, 1885 - $100,000 raised in US for pedestal for Statue of Liberty
On another website the details of this story were revealed as follows:
The architect for Liberty's pedestal, Richard Morris Hunt, was a highly respected and popular designer of expensive homes. He designed an 89-foot-high pedestal that would sit upon a concrete foundation that would appear to grow up from within the 11-pointed, star-shaped walls of the existing Fort Wood. His fee for the project was $1,000, which he returned to the fund to reassemble the statue.
General Charles P. Stone was the chief engineer in charge of the entire construction project, including the foundation, the pedestal and the reassembly of the statue. Liberty's foundation alone required 24,000 tons of concrete, the largest single mass ever poured at that time. It measures 52 feet, 10 inches in height. At the bottom, it is 91 feet, and at the top, it is 65 feet. The pedestal rises 89 feet above the foundation.
31 is the prime of The (285) Lord (3694) God (764) = 4743 = 31 prime X 153; and 61 is the prime of Christ (389912) = 61 prime X 6392.
So the title "The Lord God Christ" is numerically etched in the year 1885 which was 1891 years from 6 BC, the year our Lord was born. 1891 is 89 - the height of the foundation - bordered by two ones (1__1) which mirror 11 which mirror the 11-pointed, star-shaped walled structure of Fort Hood that the pedestal stands upon - see above.
Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi (August 2, 1834, Colmar, Haut-Rhin – October 4, 1904) was a French sculptor who is remembered mainly for designing the Statue of Liberty.
And another website wrote:
"The sculptor who designed the Statue of Liberty, Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi, was born into a well-to-do family in Colmar, France on August 2, 1834."
18340802 is Leo (356) days from August 11, 1834, the Divine Birth of our Lord God Jesus Christ. In perfect correspondence with this "Leonic" energy, prior to designing the Statue of Liberty, one of Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi's famous works was the Lion of Belfort:
"[The Lion of Belfort] was finished in 1880 and is entirely made of red sandstone. The blocks it is made from were individually sculpted then moved under Belfort castle to be assembled. The colossal work is 22 meters long and 11 meters high and dominates the local landscape.
The lion symbolizes the heroic French resistance during the Siege of Belfort, a 103 days long Prussian assault (from December 1870 to February 1871). The city was protected from 40,000 Prussians by merely 17,000 men (only 3,500 were from the military) led by Colonel Denfert-Rochereau.
Instead of facing Prussia to the east as was intended, it was turned the other way because of German protests."

Let's get back to nuts and bolts of the Statue of Liberty:

There are 354 steps inside the statue and its pedestal, with 25 windows in the crown which comprise the jewels beneath the seven rays of the diadem. The keystone which the statue holds in her left hand reads, in Roman numerals, "July 4, 1776" the day of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.
Note: 354 is two (2) - the ONLY female prime number - from Leo (356).
The Statue of Liberty was engineered to withstand heavy winds. Winds of 50 miles per hour (80 km/h) cause the Statue to sway 3 inches (76 mm) and the torch to sway 5 inches (130 mm). This allows the Statue to move rather than break in high wind load conditions.

Name: Fort Wood Walls
Also Known as: Star Fort
Built: 1808 - 1811
Altered: 1930 - 1965
The Statue of Liberty was built within the walls of Fort Hood which was completed in 1811 - see above from this link.
1811 is the 281st prime number.
281 is the numerical designator for our Lord's spiritual - ie. "corrected" - date of birth: 010811. Day 11 = 1+1 = 2, Month 8 and Year 1 combine to form 281 prime. 1811 prime mirrors 010811.
The year 1811 not only factors into the completion of Fort Hood, but it was the year that the intellectual creator of the Statue of Liberty, Édouard René Lefèbvre de Laboulaye, was born. 1811 is also 23 "I (9) Am (14)" years from 1834 the year that Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, the designer of the Statue of Liberty, was born.
According to Wikipedia:
Édouard René Lefèbvre de Laboulaye (January 18, 1811 in Paris - May 25, 1883 in Paris) was a French jurist, poet, and author.
Nevertheless, he is most remembered as the intellectual creator of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, and the lesser known twins in Paris, France and the Luxembourg Garden.
Always a careful observer of the politics of the United States, and an admirer of its constitution, he wrote a three-volume work on the political history of the United States, and published it in Paris during the height of the politically repressed Second Empire. During the Civil War, he was a zealous advocate of the Union cause, publishing histories of the cultural connections of the two nations, while the United States was in the throes of its Civil War (1862 and 1863). At the war's conclusion, in 1865 he had the idea of presenting a statue representing liberty as a gift to the United States, a symbol for ideas suppressed by Napoleon III. The sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi, one of Laboulaye's friends, turned the idea into reality.
18830525 b. - 18110118 d. = 26425 = 151 prime X 175
151 is the prime of "God (764) Is (91) One (655)" = 1510 = 151 prime X 10
And 151 is the height from base to torch (Bartholdi's design): 151' 1" (46.50m).
Finally, let's examine the date the cornerstone was set into place as follows:
Date the cornerstone was laid on Bedloe's Island:
5 August 1884
Source of Granite for the Pedestal: Leete's Island, Connecticut
President Grover Cleveland
Date of Acceptance by President: October 28, 1886
Part of Acceptance Statement by President Cleveland:
"We will not forget that liberty here made her home;
nor shall her chosen altar be neglected".
Note again that the Leo (356th) prime number is 2389 which is composed of 23 "I Am" plus 89 "Prime of Leo".
The Leo (356th) Prime 2389 = "I Am Leo!"
