Paul Wayland Bartlett created Eagle of Preparedness in 1916, soon after the British ship Lusitania was sunk by the Germans. This event sparked a crusade for military “preparedness” in America, as many people realized that entry into World War I was inevitable. With his Eagle, Bartlett showed his support for the Allied cause and the movement to rearm.
