About “American Anthem”
The great nation of America has come of age. She has been tested through the centuries, and has not been found wanting. The United States has proven to the World that she has held her own in times of war and famine, has come to the aid of nations in distress and has led the way with her innovation and imagination.
The animal symbols (Eagle, Bear, Wolf and the US Flag) within this work of art by Val Brackenridge, depict the nation’s virtues of strength, courage and a will for Freedom.
