The rattlesnake is one of the symbols associated with the United States. In 1751, Benjamin Franklin wrote an article protesting about convicts being sent to America from England. He suggested that colonists ship a cargo of rattlesnakes to multiple places in England as a way to retaliate.
Three years later, the Pennsylvania Gazette printed the picture of the rattlesnake cut into pieces. This was to remind delegates of the danger of disunity. Each segment is marked with the name of a colony and the motto, "Join or Die" appears below.
