Happy 235th birthday, Liberty!

Happy 225th Birthday, United States!
An Ektachrome slide I took in 1980 of the second Pail and Shovel Party Statue of Liberty on Lake Mendota. It replaced the first Lady Liberty in Madison, which was torched by arsonists the year before.

Nice post, but it's the 235th birthday, isn't it?

Yikes -- I seem to be even more mathematically challenged than I thought I was. Thanks. Fixed now.
