How many statue of Liberties are there? You sure?

Happy Birthday to Lady Liberty in the U.S. and she is looking good at 125 years old.  But how old are her sister(s)?  Not sure, but I just learned that their are actually 3 statues and all this time I only thought there were 2.  No big surprise given that I'm a product of the public education system.

Fun Facts on the Statue of Liberty:
She stands at the entrance of New York harbor . . . a 151-foot statue of a  woman holding a book and a torch on-high. "Liberty Enlightening the  World" was a gift of  friendship from the people of France to the United States to commemorate the 100th anniversary of American indepen-dence.  Her American name is the 'Statue of Liberty' and she adorns not only New York's harbor, but also Swan Ally Island in the Seine River in Paris and also Paris' Luxembourg Gardens.  
Yes, there are three Lady Liberties!   They are all symbols of friendship, freedom and peace between the US and France.
