Representations of American Values and Beliefs

Many of the most iconic American landmarks are actually representations of American values and beliefs. Landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the United States flag, and the National Anthem are all ways of physically showing the world what this country was founded on.
Not only are these landmarks a major part of American culture, they also play a major role in defining what it means to be an American. The United States was a country founded on freedom, pride, and extending open arms to welcome all people. Through reading the history of the Statue of Liberty, the American Flag, and the National Anthem, you really get a sense of how these things shaped the way the American people perceive their country.
