Join or Die Men's Vintage Graphic T-shirt

Liberty Maniacs

Join, or Die is Benjamin Franklin's political cartoon published in his Pennsylvania Gazette on May 9, 1754. It's the earliest known pictorial representation of colonial union produced by a British colonist in America.

The original was actually a woodcut showing a snake severed into eighths, with each segment labeled with the initial of a British American colony or region. The cartoon appeared along with Franklin's editorial about the "disunited state" of the colonies, and helped make his point about the importance of colonial unity.

During that era, there was a superstition that a snake which had been cut into pieces would come back to life if the pieces were put together before sunset. Wear a bit of history. This super-soft style tee is a fan favorite. These soft vintage feel t-shirts come pre-washed and pre-shrunk, making sure that the size and color will hold up with time. An extraordinary 40 singles thread count means the quality of these timeless shirts is very high and will quickly become one of your go-to tees in your closet.
