June 20th is 'American Eagle Day' : GlobalGiants.com

The U.S. Senate unanimously approved a special resolution naming June 20, 2007 "American Eagle Day".

American Eagle


The bald eagle was selected as America's national symbol on June 20, 1782 during the Second Continental Congress, and is scheduled to be removed from the Endangered Species Act around June 20th of this year. It has been protected under federal law since Congress passed the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act in 1940 and this protection was reinforced by the Endangered Species Act of 1973.
