On Tuesday, Bob Dylan received the nation's highest civilian honor, accepting the Medal of Freedom from President Obama. "There is not a bigger giant in the history of American music," Obama said of the singer.
The Medal of Freedom is presented to individuals who have made "meritorious contributions to the national interest of the United States, to world peace, or to other significant endeavors," according to the White House.
