The American Eagle: Symbol of Freedom & Enterprise to the du Pont Family

Friday, Nov 23, 2012 9:30a to 4:30p
Hagley Museum and Library Wilmington, DE

The image of the eagle has been an important icon in the history of the du Pont family. The du Pont family came to America on the ship “American Eagle," the DuPont Company's first product was Eagle Gun Powder, and decorative arts collected by Mrs. Louise du Pont Crowninshield were adorned with eagles, a common symbolic element in Federal-style furnishings. This exhibit is on display in the du Pont family ancestral home, Eleutherian Mills.
