    OK, for those SNOPES fans, I DID NOT check this.

    I found it interesting, and thought I would share.

    interesting,

    here is a link to similar info where the interpretive aspects are better acknowledged
    http://kids.niehs.nih.gov/triviadollar.htm

    and a 1hour history channel program "secrets of the dollar bill" next airing on Jan 30th
    http://www.history.com/shows.do?episode ... ion=detail

    incidentally, the bundle of arrows symbolism was probably borrowed from the Iroquois Confederacy, and their iconic - "one arrow can be easily broken but many arrows bundled together can not be easily broken", studied by Benjamin Franklin.
