What is the Great Seal of the U.S.?The Great Seal is a picture that stands for the United States. You may have already seen this picture on a one dollar bill. Back in Benjamin Franklin’s time, some people in the government decided that the new nation needed a symbol. Each part of the picture has a special meaning that reveals something about the country.
