Give me your tired, 

your poor, Your huddled 

masses yearning to 

breathe free,
The wretched refuse

of your teeming shore,


Send these, the homeless,

tempest tossed.

I lift my lamp beside

 the golden door ! 

The origin of the copper mined for the statue?
Stavanger, Norway.  Ya sure, you betcha. 
Look how young some of these miners were
 – only boys, circa 1879.
Here’s the original mine pit – 31 TONS of
copper were mined just for the
Statue of Liberty!
