Go grab a $1 bill and check out the back right circle called The Great Seal. This American symbol has many little known secrets. In the beak, the eagle has a scroll with the motto “E PLURIBUS UNUM” which means “out of many, one.” Over its head is a field called a “glory” with 13 stars referring to the original 13 states. In front of the eagle is a shield with a shaded top called a “chief” and vertical stripes called “pales”. The stripes represent the states joined together, supporting a chief, which unites the whole and represents Congress.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
