$1.00 bill – Something I never knew

Who  Was Haym Solomon?

Read  this fascinating history of the $1 bill –

All the way to the bottom to know  about Haym Solomon. You  may be  in for quite a surprise! On  the rear of the One Dollar bill, you will see two circles.  Together, they comprise the Great Seal of the United States.The  First Continental Congress requested that Benjamin Franklin and  a group of men come up with a Seal. It took them four years to  accomplish this task and another two years to get it  approved.

If you look at the left-hand circle, you will see a  Pyramid.

Notice  the face is lighted, and the western side is dark. This country  was just beginning. We had not begun to explore the west or  decided what we could do for Western Civilization. The Pyramid  is uncapped, again signifying that we were not even close to  being finished. Inside the Capstone you have the all-seeing eye,  an ancient symbol for divinity. It was Franklin ‘s belief that  one man couldn’t do it alone, but a group of men, with the help  of God, could do anything.

‘IN GOD WE TRUST’ is on  this currency.

The  Latin above the pyramid, ANNUIT COEPTIS, means, ‘God has  favored our undertaking.’

The  Latin below the pyramid, NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM, means, ‘a new  order has begun.’

At  the base of the pyramid is the Roman numeral for 1776.  (MDCCLXXVI)

If you look at the right-hand circle, and  check it carefully, you will learn that it is on every National  Cemetery in the United States.

It  is also on the Parade of Flags Walkway at the Bushnell, Florida National Cemetery , and is the centerpiece of most heroes’  monuments.

Slightly modified, it is the seal of the  President of the United States, and it is always visible  whenever he speaks, yet very few people know what the symbols  mean.

The  Bald Eagle was selected as a symbol for victory for two reasons:

First, he is not afraid of a storm; he is strong, and he is  smart enough to soar above it.

Secondly, he wears no  material crown. We had just broken f rom the King of England .

Also, notice the shield is unsupported. This country can now  stand on its own.

At the top of that shield there is a white  bar signifying congress, a unifying factor. We were coming  together as one nation.

In the Eagle’s beak you will read, ‘  E PLURIBUS UNUM’ meaning, ‘f rom many – one.’

Above  the Eagle, we have the thirteen stars, representing the thirteen original colonies, and any clouds of misunderstanding rolling  away. Again, we were coming together as  one.

Notice  what the Eagle holds in his talons. He holds an olive branch and arrows. This country wants peace, but we will never be afraid to  fight to preserve peace. The Eagle always wants to face the  olive branch, but in time of war, his gaze turns toward the  arrows.

An  (untrue) old-fashioned belief says that  the number 13 is an unlucky number. This is almost a worldwide  belief. You will almost never see a room numbered 13, or any  hotels or motels with a 13th floor. But think about

America  , which relies on God (not a number) to direct and lead, boldly chose:

13  original colonies,

13 signers of the Declaration of  Independence ,

13 stripes on our flag,

13 steps on the  pyramid,

13  letters in ‘Annuit Coeptis’,

13  letters in ‘ E Pluribus Unum,’

13 stars above the  eagle,

13 bars on that shield,

13 leaves on the olive  branch,

13  fruits, and if you look closely,

13  arrows.

And  finally, notice the arrangement of the 13  stars in  the right-hand circle. You  will see that they are arranged as a Star  of David.

This  was ordered by  George Washington who, when he asked Haym Solomon, a wealthy  Philadelphia Jew, what he would like as a personal reward for  his services to the Continental Army. Solomon said he wanted nothing for himself,  but he would like something for his people.The Star of David was the result. Few people know it was Solomon who saved the  Army through his financial  contributions  …then  died a pauper. Haym Solomon gave $25 million  to  save  the  Continental Army, money that was sorely  needed to help  realize  America’s  -our-  freedom  and  independence  f rom England .

Therein  lies America ‘s Judeo-Christian beginning.

Most American children do NOT know any of this.

They  are not taught because their history teachers do NOT know  this.

[They  were not taught!]

On  America’s Freedom:

Too  many veterans gave up too much to let the meaning fade. Many  veterans came home to an America that did not care. Too many  veterans never came home at all. They  served, they died for you . for  me. I  hope you will  share this page with many-so they can learn about the  UNITED  STATES DOLLAR BILL, and what it stands for.

America  is at a critical juncture.

Let’s  do  whatever we can to  save her

while  never, ever forgetting:

It is  God in whom we put our trust !!!
