The war eagle
The legend dates back to the first clash between Auburn and Georgia (still to this day one of the two main rivals of AU) in 1892 and focuses on a spectator, who was a veteran of the Civil War. In the stands with him that day was an eagle the former soldier had found on a battlefield during the war, he had kept it as a pet for almost 30 years. According to the legend, the eagle suddenly broke free and began majestically circling the playing field. As the eagle soared, Auburn began a steady march toward the Georgia end zone for a thrilling victory.
