    The bald eagle was named the emblem of the United States of America on June 20, 1782 for many reasons. It was chosen above other animals because it is a strong and majestic creature with a long life span. Additionally, at that time, the bald eagle was believed to only dwell in North America. According to legend, one of the first battles in the Revolutionary War woke the eagles from their slumber early in the morning. These curious eagles circled the skies above the ensuing fight and the patriots claimed that they were “shrieking for freedom”. But perhaps the most relevant reason was that the Founding Fathers saw the bald eagle as the utmost embodiment of freedom and liberty. This large predatory bird epitomizes freedom as it gracefully swoops through the limitless sky.
