Unite Or Die Patch

 

The Unite Or Die Patch was originally conceived by Benjamin Franklin to unite the colonies behind The French And Indian War. After The Stamp Act was passed, the wording was changed from Join Or Die to Unite Or Die and used to unite the colonies against the British.

 

I think that Benjamin Franklin’s description of the American Rattlesnake, as a representation of the 13 colonies, is still a fitting description of the modern day American.

 

I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness, that of any other animal, and that she has no eye-lids. She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance. She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. As if anxious to prevent all pretensions of quarreling with her, the weapons with which nature has furnished her, she conceals in the roof of her mouth, so that, to those who are unacquainted with her, she appears to be a most defenseless animal; and even when those weapons are shown and extended for her defense, they appear weak and contemptible; but their wounds however small, are decisive and fatal. Conscious of this, she never wounds ’till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.
