Illustrated by Benjamin Franklin, the ''Join, Or Die'' image was likely the first political cartoon to appear in what would soon become the United States of America. In the cartoon each segment of the snake represents one of the British American colonies, with the New England states being represented by a single ''NE'' and Delaware and Georgia being omitted.
Franklin's message was simple enough to resonate with the public but nuanced enough to send a fierce message to Loyalists. Affix this patch to your jacket or bookbag as a clever nod to early American history - it's sure to be a conversation starter!
