Heraldry in the USA
Arms of Famous Americans
Presidents of the United States
The members of the American Heraldry Society, led by the Director of Research, Joseph McMillan, have embarked on a project to research and collect information related to the coats of arms and other heraldic emblems used by Presidents of the United States. Their goal is collect as much information and educate us all on how these famous Americans used their arms and how different organizations give honor to them today by incorporating likenesses of those arms.
At least half the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution bore arms. We present here two rolls of their arms, with links to more extensive discussions of the arms of selected signers.
