Join or Die Sons of Liberty Poster

Liberty Maniacs

Features the Sons of Liberty flag and the famous Ben Franklin woodcut "Join or Die" rattlesnake cartoon used to illustrate how a divided colonial resistance would perish.

The rattlesnake was a symbol Franklin pushed hard to be the symbol of the new nation of course. He always detested the eagle as a bird of prey and "foul creature." The Eastern Rattlesnake, however, was a noble creature who peacefully minded its own until provoked, whereby a fair warning was given before delivering a fatal defensive blow. Museum-quality posters made on thick, durable, matte paper.

A statement in any room. These puppies are printed on archival, acid-free paper. Printed in America, sweatshop free. Frame not included.
