The "Join or Die" image first appeared in the May 9, 1754, edition of Benjamin Franklin's newspaper, the Pennsylvania Gazette. It is considered the earliest visual image representing a union of the early American colonies. The woodcut shows a snake cut into eighths — each portion labeled for one of the colonies or regions.
