The Join-or-Die Dishtowel

$10.00 USD

This famous symbol first appeared in 1754.

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.
