18000 Men to Form Statue of Liberty - Camp Dodge 1918


Sent in by a good friend and is circulating around the internet- This is a really incredible picture for many reasons: It was taken in 1918 at Camp Dodge, Iowa and 18,000 men fashioned the shape of the Statue of Liberty . One thing you will notice, that the front is only a few men wide, but because the shape is so LONG, more men are needed to give the appearance of thickness towards the head and torch. Hard to believe that 12,000 of the 18,000 are in the torch alone!
Fun Facts:

Base to Shoulder: 150 feet
Right Arm: 340 feet
Widest part of arm holding torch: 12 1/2 feet
Right thumb: 35 feet
Thickest part of body: 29 feet
Left hand length: 30 feet
Face: 60 feet
Nose: 21 feet
Longest spike of head piece: 70 feet
Torch and flame combined: 980 feet
Number of men in flame of torch: 12,000
Number of men in torch: 2,800
Number of men in right arm: 1,200
Number of men in body, head and balance of figure only: 2,000
