Virginia Beach, Virginia (PRWEB) July 02, 2013 - America’s freedom will not be the only cause for celebration this Independence Day. A grand re-opening is in store for the Statue of Liberty on July 4th as a newly rebuilt Liberty Island is unveiled. The tourist attraction was closed in October 2012 due to the mass destruction in New York Harbor following Hurricane Sandy. The infographic created by Liberty Tax Service paints the history and comeback of our Lady Liberty.
