    • Nathaniel,
      Your take on eagles and how they relate to freedom was a very interesting one. I do agree that eagles are a symbol for freedom in America but inferring what people think based on what they say is not a very good way to support your evidence. Here’s an article that can back up your claim of how an eagles are a symbol of freedom with more substantial evidence (Celebrating America’s Freedom). It talks about the eagle appearing on the American flag as well as on billions of one dollar bills making it a very important symbol for America.
