The history of bald eagle
eagle was made the national bird of the United
States in 1782 . The image of the bald eagle
can be found in many places in the U.S ., such as on the Great Seal , Federal agency seals , the President’s flag , and on the one-dollar bill. The Founding Fathers wanted to choose an animal that was unique to the United States . For six years , the members of Congress engaged in a dispute over what the national emblem should be . As a result of the debate , the bald eagle was chosen because it symbolized strength , courage , freedom , and immortality and that it would look much better as our national symbol .
