Eagle Sculpture of Freedom

One of my favorite things to do in the early spring is to travel up the river road and watch the bald eagles nest, just North of Grafton, Illinois. For those of you not familiar with the area, Grafton is located about 40 miles north of St. Louis on the Illinois side of the river.

The eagles have such a majestic, regal presence as the soar effortlessly through the air. It is no surprise this animal embodies the symbolism of pride, strength, freedom, unity and longevity. This symbolism is precisely why the Founding Fathers choose the Bald Eagle to represent the United States.

On June 20, 1782, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Great Seal of the United States depicting a bald eagle clutching 13 arrows and a 13 leaf olive branch. From there Bald Eagles would also appear on United States’ coins, bills, the presidential flag and many federal agency logos.
