Fun fact! Did you know Benjamin Franklin urged the national bird to be a turkey instead of an eagle? Well, that’s actually false, but here is what he did say!
“I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America… He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.”
Happy Thanksgiving to You and Yours!
