Eagle facts contributed by our volunteers and NE Energy Services.
"For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative
of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly." Benjamin Franklin
"The bald eagle was selected as our national symbol for two reasons.
First, he is not afraid of a storm; he is strong, and he is smart enough to soar above it. Secondly, he wears no material
crown. He is not beholden to any King." Historical source unattributed.
