Eagle sculpture

'Freedom's Sentinel' crowns main entrance of the Yorktown Victory Center

An iconic symbol of the United States of America – sculpted by nationally prominent artist David H. Turner – is newly mounted on the pediment crowning the main entrance of the The American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, transitioning to American Revolution Museum at Yorktown in October.

Titled “Freedom’s Sentinel,” the 18-foot-wide, 500-pound sculpture depicts an eagle mantling two eaglets between its outspread wings. A stars-and-stripes shield on the eagles’s chest represents the 13 colonies at the time of the Revolution, and the two eaglets reflect the museum’s mission to educate future generations.
